No Sew Fabric Journal
Make 2016 an organized one with this journal that you can carry everything with you! Simple materials for a stunning, versatile journal!
Cloth (the fabric I used came from an old dress)
Cardboard (a used folder will do)
Glue gun and glue sticks
Paper made into signatures
Lay out the signature/s on the cardboard and cut the cardboard with a margin of about 1/3"-1/2".
Cut 2 pcs if fabric with a margin of about half an inch around the cardboard.
Fold the margin of 1 piece of fabric around the cardboard and use a glue gun to attach it. Fold the margin of the second piece of fabric to cover the other side of the folder but this time use a double fold to make the edges neat.
Lay the signature/s down on the fabric covered folder. Tie each signature down with a thin garter passing the garter over the journal cover.
Cut a small piece of fabric to make the closure. Glue it neatly to the back of the journal, and then glue Velcro to the other end of the closure. The other piece of Velcro should be attached to the front of the journal.
Add a button or embellishment to hide the Velcro. You can also decorate the journal with ribbons, laces, fabric flowers, paper cut outs, etc.
