A mini journal created with First Edition Free Spirit; the idea is a positive theme throughout so this can be used to document mindfulness activities. To create the book itself, I cut the cover paper to a size of 10inch by 5inch, with the inner papers becoming slightly smaller further in size towards the centre of the the journal. I then folded these in half and bound these into a book using the We R Memory Keepers Paige Evans book-binding tool - I used a simple saddle stitch. I also created a tassel from cream thread (I followed this tutorial - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pbQG2sCYC4) and threaded this into the last stitch of the book spine. I added a pom-pom trim to the edge of the cover, and then it was time to decorate the inner pages. I wanted to leave spaces for journalling, so I added in some white spaces, and hidden pull-out tabs on which there is space for writing. I decorated the pages with lots of fussy-cut elements from the paper pad and other embellishments such as sequins, enamel dots and gilding flakes.
Thanks for looking x
