TELL YOUR STORY CLASS: day 6


make a "bag journal"


FOR OUR JOURNAL MAKING ASSIGNMENT:
I used a file folder for the cover, green embroidery thread to bind, found papers cut in different sizes, and punched eyelets with two different patterned ribbons threaded through them to keep the journal closed.  I plan to use this for our upcoming san francisco trip this june.

it really is amazing. Do you use an eyelet setter? I want to use them for making my own wee journals but i dont know what tools are best?

I used a crop-a-dile tool -- makes eyelet setting sooooo easy!!! couldn't do without it.
