Homemade Journal Ideas

Sometimes I want a vintage-looking page without actually dyeing the paper. I have used sewing pattern paper to achieve this result. For now I will be using this small journal to glue my water color art and hold a few recipes.

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 1

Supplies:

  • any paper page or journal of blank pages
  • sewing pattern cut to fit paper
  • scissors
  • washi tape
  • piece of ribbon
  • large paper clips
  • glue stick - I used a large one

Steps:

  1. Cut sewing pattern to fit paper.
  2. Cover page with glue, using glue stick. Place sewing pattern over glue covered page.
  3. Place washi tape between pages.
  4. Take ribbon and put through large paper clip. Tie a knot or a bow. I used a tiny rubber band. My ribbon piece was too short to tie.
  5. Set pretty paper clip aside and put one plain paper clip on each page. This is for pretty papers, recipes, receipts, etc.
  6. Close papers with the pretty paper clip.
