This is my first post over here in Paper Crafts, Hi everyone!

I made this for the Favorite color swap I just finished. My partner has received her package already, so I wanted to share here. I's been a while since I've made any journals, and I forgot how oddly soothing it is. I always relax when I do any kind of hand sewing... I used sketch paper, and left the edges a little rough, I though it was a nice contrast to the fabric, which actually has gold accents, even though you can't see them. The rings around the flowers are gold. That's why the ribbon is gold, in case you were wondering Tongue

So what do y'all think? Should I send my journal making back into dormancy??

Thanks!! I started making these in 5th grade, my teacher was a pre-craftster type.
There is an awesome tutorial that I've seen mentioned here that spells it out pretty clearly:
http://curiouslycrafty.wordpress.com/tutorials/
click on the JOURNALS link and go from there Cheesy There are a ton of pictures to walk you through the whole process.

Hope you get the chance to make one (or several) and that you post when you do!
