DIY Per­son­al­ized Dis­ney Trip Journal

This is a great project to get kids excited about their upcom­ing trip and will pre­serve their mem­o­ries for years to come. Encour­age kids to paste in sou­venirs, make best-of lists, and write a few words about their favorite moments!

What You Need

  • Blank jour­nal
  • 1 sheet red card stock
  • 1 sheet yel­low card stock
  • Mod Podge (or glue stick)
  • Scis­sors

Optional

Instruc­tions

  1. Cut out your child’s name from yel­low card stock using scis­sors or your Cri­cut machine. We used the Mickey font from the Dis­ney© Mickey Font Cri­cut® Cartridge.
  2. Cut out a Mickey icon from red card stock. If you’re using a Cri­cut machine, you can find the icon on the Dis­ney© Mickey Font Cri­cut® Car­tridge. Alter­na­tively, you can trace the Mickey icon and cut with scis­sors (search “mickey mouse icon” on Google Image Search to find a suit­able tem­plate to trace).
  3. Attach the Mickey icon and your child’s name to the front of the jour­nal using Mod Podge (or glue stick).

DIY Paper-Cut Dis­ney Announcement

This is an amaz­ing way to let kids know that things are about to get super excit­ing! Just watch your kids’ faces light up when they receive their hand­made note straight from their favorite mouse let­ting them know they’re headed to the most mag­i­cal place on earth.

What You Need

  • Large pre­sen­ta­tion enve­lope (9-in. by 11.5-in.)
  • 1 sheet 12x12 black glit­ter paper (or suit­able substitute)
  • 1 sheet yel­low card stock
  • 1 sheet red card stock
  • 1 sheet white card stock
  • Mod Podge (or glue stick)
  • Scis­sors

Optional

Instruc­tions

  1. Using scis­sors or your Cri­cut machine, cre­ate a paper-cut fic­tional let­ter from Mickey invit­ing your child to the park. We used the Mickey font and Dis­ney logo from the Dis­ney© Mickey Font Cri­cut® Cartridge.
  2. Cut strips of yel­low and red card stock and attach to the back of the let­ter using Mod Podge (or glue stick).
  3. To cre­ate the enve­lope seal, cut out a Mickey icon using black glit­ter paper. If you’re using a Cri­cut machine, you can find the icon on the Dis­ney© Mickey Font Cri­cut® Car­tridge. Alter­na­tively, you can trace the Mickey icon and cut with scis­sors (search “mickey mouse icon” on Google Image Search to find a suit­able tem­plate to trace).
  4. Attach the Mickey seal to the pre­sen­ta­tion enve­lope using Mod Podge (or glue stick).
  5. For an extra fes­tive touch, cre­ate paper con­fetti using the left­over scraps of black and white paper and place it inside before seal­ing the envelope.
