All along I thought tie dye patterns could only be applied on fabrics, but when I saw a tutorial on how to put it on paper and I gave it a try and it looked great!


  • long sized bond paper (legal - 8.5"x13")
  • assorted color markers
  • your book or notebook
  • glue
  • scissors


  1. Measure the size of your notebook. Draw a border line on your paper based on the notebook's size.

  3. Fold the paper in half to determine its center and put a dot to mark it.
  4. Starting with that small dot draw a spiral using colored marker.
  5. Make layers of spirals using different colors.
  6. Now, start drawing lines similar to rays of sun. See photo.
  7. Do the same with the other colors and let colors blend in from layer to layer until it covers the whole paper.

  9. When it's done cut out the border line.
  10. Get your notebook and coat the outer part of the cover with glue.
  11. Stick the designed paper onto it. Trim excess neatly.
  12. Done.

Thanks robyn! the steps are so simple which I even didn't think it would be that easy and fast for me to learn.


Never even expected I could immediately create a good result at first try.
