Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are always looking for fun ways to bring a little Disney to the every day. I needed to replace my notebook I use for all my crafts – and the kiddo wanted one for school, so I broke out some Dollar Tree supplies and made this fun Disney craft!


So, really, this is both a Dollar Tree craft and a Disney craft, which is kind of awesome, but then it’s also a back to school craft. Trifecta of awesome. If you’re ready to make a fun Mickey and Minnie notebook, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Mickey and Minnie Notebooks

  • First, grab a couple of mini composition notebooks from the Dollar Tree. If you can’t find them there, don’t sweat it, I found some here that are just like the ones I used.
  • For anyone who has worked with notebooks before, you probably don’t need to hear this, but I’m going to say it for anyone who hasn’t… Be very careful to keep the adhesive out of the pages of the notebook. If you glue the pages of the book together, you won’t be able to use it.
  • If you want to make these notebooks in a bigger size like the full size composition notebooks, just use a full sheet of construction paper and a larger hole punch. Easy to upsize.
