Question about altering journals...
OK...I am ready to embark on my project for the day...to alter my first journal as a gift for someone. My question is...what do you all find to be the best method of adhering the base cardstock to the journal itself? I'd really appreciate hearing from you as to what works best for some of you. Thanks in advance. :-) LM

I like a thin coat of Mod Podge, lay down the paper and then smooth thoroughly to get out all air bubbles. Then after it dries, I coat the outside to make it a bit more sturdy. They are really fun to make. Here are some I did.

I personally prefer to use glue stick with a bead of Scotch Brand Quick Dry around the perimeter. It just makes way less of a mess and works great. I also find it stays adhered longer.

I you are using a spiral bound journal, rip out one sheet of paper and use it as a guide to punch the same holes, then, make a tiny snip from the holes to the edge of the paper. Then adhere down, slipping those little slits over the spirals. It makes a fool proof journal cover....no one knows how you did it!

Here's one I did. It's a Christmas list journal.

If you are using composition books, check out this link where I showed how to do the minis... same idea for the big ones;)!
