I was wanting to make a soft, feminine journal book and this is what it came out to be. In the end, it might be a cute baby boy pregnancy journal or something.
I thought I was clever (someone probably already did this, though!) when I made the closure for the journal. It is a big button and I stuck a brad through the two sewing holes and attached it to the chipboard. So now, when you want to close it, you can just wind it around the button or wind and tie as I did. The backside uses Hodgepodge hardware (I didn't have a matching button, lol).
For the pen, I covered the actual plastic ink cartridge with white copy paper and then stuck beads into the shaft. I should have used smaller ones like micro - duh! But, I was out. Smashing the bigger beads didn't work so well - turned into powder. :-(
Thanks for looking!
