I adhered lace and sewed a button to the spine.
The inside I added pockets and more fussy cut images from Tsunami Rose Designs. I attached the latch with adhesive and a decorative brad which I covered the prongs with a little washi tape.
I used as my closure a tassel with an attached cord and added elastic cording to the spine so I can add my own handmade journals.
I had a leftover piece of file folder which I turned into a book mark. I started by cutting two of the butterflies from the Birds and Butterflies Diecuts from felt. I added bits of lace, thread and cording to the butterfly before adhering to the top of the book mark. I added pearlized pins for antennas and a button and gem to the body. This is a great way to keep your spot in your journal and its cute too.😊
Of course if you are journaling on the go you need a way to store and take washi tape with you. From my Sizzix diecut packaging I used the Needle Book Diecut and cut a few of the needle books out and embossed with the Fantasy Flowers Embossing Folder. Next I cut several 12 inch pieces of washi tape and wrapped. Easy Peasy!
Some of the washi tape cards I used a mini clothes pin to hold it in place.
Here is a sneak peek of my journal filled up and ready to be journaled in. Be sure to hop on over to Eileen Hull's blog to see what the other Inspiration Team members have created! You can find those posts HERE and HERE.
