I started by cutting two covers from white felt, two inside covers and a spine from White Paper Leather. Before adhering all together with Fabri-Tac Adhesive I embossed the paper leather covers with the Waffle Embossing Folder and the spine with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder. I forgot to add the paper leather I adhered to the inside of each cover to give the journal just enough rigidness yet flexibility for the journal to expand.
While the covers and pocket where drying I cut from the Stitchy Flower and Leaf Diecuts a few flowers from the white, peach and olive felt. For the white felt flowers I painted those in Melon and Sunshine and let dry.
I found this micro notebook at Michael’s and thought this would be perfect to add to the inside of the journal. So all I had to do was add elastic cording and add the notebooks.
I had a leftover piece of notebook divider…you know the ones that you can purchase at Target in the Dollar Spot for a dollar? I folded and rounded the corners and added to the center elastic a place to hold sticky notes just in case my mom needs to jot down a reminder.
In the back pocket I added a gift card to Hobby Lobby and a mini black gel pen but my mom she can use the pocket to receipts, stamps or whatever.
I love how easy it was to use the felt and how well the inks that I used on it turned out!
