The paper is from K&Company called Berry Sweet and it's just adorable.
I took some thin chipboard and covered it with the paper and Mod Podge and let it sit overnight under some heavy books. The next day I used my BIA and put it together and decorated it.
I used ribbon, primas, buttons, chip board accents from American Crafts, felt flowers, jewels, stickers and accent cutouts from my Storybook cartridge.
I let these dry overnight because I covered the front and backs of both the front and back covers. Then the next day I added the word "notes" and used Mod Podge again to seal the stickers. I waited about a half hour to dry well enough then decorated them.
When I made things like this I like to Mod Podge over the top to help seal the letters and just to protect the journal in general.
