card journal ~ a tutorial & a giveaway

*hello! i know i said this tutorial would be on flowers but i thought i'd save that, so...
you will need:
a card
paper{for the inserts}
ribbon
scissors
tape or glue


extras you may like to include:
scrapbooking supplies
fabric
faux flowers
paper cutouts
stickers
paper clips


First, select a card to use for the cover. It can be a store bought card or one someone has given to you{the writing inside will only make the journal more apt to be cherished}.

Then collect 2 or 3 pieces of paper, i used white paper but you could use any variety of colours or textures.

Fold it then cut in strips to make a double page block.


Fold those pages in half & check they fit snuggly inside you card, leaving about 1/2 cm on each side.

Poke 2 holes through the spine. {I positioned them a little more in the back of the card}

Then thread the ribbon/twine/or string through & tie several knots on the outer side of the journal before finishing with a bow{so even if the bow comes undone, the journal won't}


Cut 2 equal lengths of ribbon & sticky tape or glue these to the inside covers.


Embellish!!!


& when you're finished you'll have a gorgeous little keepsake journal...


if someone would like this one, id be happy to post it off to a lucky winner...feel free to leave a comment about journalling & i'll choose a winner next Wednesday :) have a very lovely week!
