Hi everyone! If you don’t already know I love to create junk journals and my own traveler notebooks and I always have leftover scraps of notebook and grid paper that I can’t make myself throw away so I thought why not make a mini notebook from my scraps?
I am excited to share that I have a notebook I created up on Canvas Corp’s blog today! For more info and photos you can find the post HERE.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! It’s me and I’m here to share my last post with Dragons Lair Den. I am thankful for the time I have been on the design team and being able to share a little bit of my take on DLD printables.
I created this mini Santa journal from a file folder which I cutdown and the finished size is a 3 1/2″x5″ and that measures from the “creases” or three folds in the file folder.
I inked the spine with a green ink, let dry and then measured and marked four small holes at 1″ intervals down the spine. I used a very thick needle to punch each hole.
I printed off the sage green sheet from the Victorian Christmas Collection-Card Papers and cut two 3 1/2″x5″ pieces to fit the front and the back of the journal. I used the Christmas Merriment embossing folder and embossed both pieces before adhering to the journal. Next I printed out the Vintage Santa Card Kit and cut one of the Santa’s out, inked the edges and then used pop dots to raise the image. I finished off the front with baker’s twine, button, sequins, dew drops, tulle and a metal star. I also applied Stickles to the Santa’s beard and hair.
I cut twenty sheets of notebook paper to fit the inside of the journal. Once folded in half I sewed the pages and tied off on the outside of the spine. I added fiber and ribbon also to make it more festive.
From the same Victorian Christmas Collection-Card Papers I printed off a burgundy sheet and cut it down to make an inside pocket. I added from the Vintage Santa Card Kit a label and flower to finish it off.
There you have it a simple little journal that can be used to jot down notes, keep up with receipts or whatever else you can think of. 🙂 Please be sure to check out the Dragons Lair Den for these printables and more. If you have any questions please let me know.
Other Supplies Used: Baker’s Twine, Sequins, Button, File Folder, Metal Star, Stickles, Notebook Paper, Tulle
