Journal Art

Look! I haven't forgotten about creating. I found these blank journals maybe at Hobby Lobby or Michael's and cut some beautiful paper to cover the outside and then ran it through the Xyron machine. Before I attached the paper to the journal, I cut ribbon and tied it around the book. THEN, I adhered the paper over the ribbon to anchor it down.
After that, I added the finishing touches. Used my favorite chalky inks around the edges, took some Tim Holz embellishments with Paper Whimsy images and attached brads to hold them down. To cover the brad holes, I cut a piece of matching paper to affix to the inside cover.
Great easy gifts for the holidays!
