The Easiest Way to Make a Journal

16 Nov 2012

My journal is all filled up
and I decided to make my own
to avoid what happened here!

I folded some 8 1/2" x 11" kraft and white papers
in half.

Then I punched holes in the folded papers
with a two hole punch.

Here are the papers for my journal.

Next I looked for an old leather jacket.

After putting the pages through two rings,
I auditioned the pages on the leather I cut from the jacket.

I then sewed the rings on to the leather,
making sure to sew on both sides of the screws
so that the rings won't fall off.

I then found a long piece of leather from 
the sleeve portion of the jacket.
I made two slits on the cover and inserted the strip of leather.

I then sewed some buttons to hold it all together.
I also used a glue gun to keep the strip in place.

I now have a journal to put my reflections in!
And it only took less than an hour to make! 
If you want to see some of my drawings 
and read my reflections,
come and visit me at HeARTworks.

Of course, if you don't have the time or inclination
to make a journal,
you can always drop by our stores 
and find some really nice ones!
