Okay so I wanted to make a visual journal but I wanted something Slytherin themed. It's mostly completed but the journey is only beginning because as I add pages, I will probably add more to the cover as well. I also might add a green ribbon with a charm for a bookmark as well.

I designed all of the images used on the front, back, and inside covers.

^---- This is what I started with.

^------- The image I used for the base front cover. The Slytherin crest made to look like crinkled paper. I used Photoshop CS5.

A better picture.

I decided to add some silver foil binding. It's origami paper.

The inside covers. I made this in Photoshop CS5 as well.

Then I laminated the covers using packing tape.

If someone wants an in depth tutorial, I'd be more than happy to post one as the steps are a bit more intricate than this but it's still relatively easy to do.

The stripes and the cover are graphics that I made myself. I'm more than happy to share the stripes if folks feel like they would use them.

Awesome idea. I wouldn't mind reading a tutorial on how to do this. I bought a composition book the other day and haven't decided what to do with it yet.

Have you done anything Slytherin related to the inside pages or are you keeping it to the covers?

The crinkled paper effect works so well with the theme and the fact that it's a journal
