Hello everyone. I just wanted to post a couple of the fabric covered journals I've made. I'm not sure if they belong here, but it's the closest match I could find. Thanks for looking. C & C welcome.

wow, these are REALLY neat. I LOVE the second one, the extra embellishments you added that match perfectly. did you make them yourself or did you just cover the journals?

Thank you so much for the compliment. I really appreciate it. No, I didn't make the journals myself. I purchased the standard composition notebook and covered it and embellished my heart out. I would like to learn how to make the actual journal though.

They look awesome, especially the second one! Love the butterflies and the keyhole.
How did you attach the fabric? Did you spread glue over the complete surface? Or just at the inside of the cover? Or completely different? Wink

Thank you for the compliment. I'm glad you like them. Actually I attach the fabric completely different. I used Heat and Bond to attach the fabric to the cover. I like the smooth finish of it and it seems to add a little more stability to it as well. Plus I think it would hold much better than glue. Hope that helps some.  Grin

Wow, I should try that the next time I cover a composition book. Smiley It never occurred to me to use Heat and Bond to attach material to the book. Tongue And you did such an awesome job on those journals that you can't tell they're composition books.  Cheesy

Thank you so much for the compliment. I really appreciate it. Yes, heat and bond works really well for covering the journals. You don't get the bumpy quality that you do from glue or the tackiness either. It seems to hold up much better than glue as well.
