I found some pens that I thought were a neat idea; they had white ink and were able to write on black paper. This was a great idea until I couldn't find a notebook/journal with black paper in it and I was really wanting to get this for a collection of gifts for my girlfriend. So, like so many of us here (on Craftster) I decided that I would make one. Here is one of the two finished products:
I started out with a folder designed to hold standard notebook paper with three holes, high grade black construction paper, and a decent yellow file folder.
I first cut the construction paper in half (to 6"x9") and then cut the folder with tabs to size to allow slight overhang from the black paper. I used some Elmer's spray adhesive to glue the heavier yellow folder on the outside of the semi-constructed notebook. I then trimmed it to 1/2" larger on all sides than the notebook.
I plan on finding some Steelers and Penguins stickers to include with the two journals. I was hoping the inside would look a little bit nicer, but I'm overall happy with the short time-span that I had to put it together in addition to having never made something like this.
