Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today sharing a DIY travel Journal for your next trip using the lovely Patio Party collection.
I have never used a Travel Journal but our next vacation is going to be the last one in a few months so I thought I would give it a try! Making your own Travel Journal is very easy and all you need are patterned papers and white plain paper.
To make the album cut your patterned papers to the desired size. I cut my paper 8 1/2 inch wide and 7 3/4 inch height. I used the gorgeous papers from the Patio Party collection that I think are perfect for summer photos!
Bend your papers in half and make a cover 1/4 inch bigger than the inside pages.
Next, cut some white plain paper to make your inside pages, I used an old notebook because I liked the square pattern.
Hold all the pages together with big clips and using your Staple Board, put 3 staples on your album. The Staple Board lets you see exactly where you are stapling so it is perfect for this project!
Next, use a craft knife to trim all the papers.
To close my Travel Journal I used one of these gold safety pins and some elastic. I secured the edges with my USB glue gun and then used some Stitch Happy thread to embellish it.
You can open the Travel Journal by sliding the closure or by opening the safety pin!
I decorated the front of my Travel Journal with a few die cuts and a wood veneer.
My Journal is ready and all I have to do now is fill it! You can carry small alphas, a few stickers and washi tapes with you and that way you can scrap on the go! Have you ever used a Travel Journal?
Have a great day!
