Homemade for the Holidays: Journal

Do you have a dreamer or writer in your family? Perhaps a friend who is about to take the trip of a life time? This may be a fun gift for them! Simply take a plain notebook (in this case not spiral bound) and cover with scrapbook paper. As you can see, I also covered the inside cover. If you want you can attach a ribbon for a book mark, tie a pen to it, or if you have spirals attach ribbon to the spiral. Taking a few stamps and stamping random pages inside is also a nice touch. Here is a link to a book mark I made earlier this year as well.


  1. A great friend of mine gave me a journal like this for my trip to Guatemala. I can't thank her enough. :)

  2. Very pretty! Thanks much for linking it up to A Handmade Christmas. I am loving all the ideas.
