DIY Washi Tape Smash Book/JournalPosted: September 6, 2012
I recently stumbled across the most AMAZING, super cute, super easy to use Gratitude Journal app on the iPhone. One entry a day, you can easily attach a photograph, and you can set daily reminders as well…LOVE this app.
Inspired by the app and intent on ACTUALLY COMPLETING a Gratitude Journal, I wanted to make something to keep actual copies of the photographs and handwrite sentiments. Many of the composition notebooks have been marked down at Target, I found this particular notebook for .37 cents. Giddy about having the chance to finally use my embarrassingly large washi tape stash, I went to work…
I grouped the pages in threes as I wanted them sturdy and thick enough to withstand ink, tape, embellishments, etc.
Super easy. The edges are far from perfect. Just line up…
Turn the book over. Cut the corners at an angle. Fold over corner. Fold over tape. Turn book back over and fold down the remaining pieces of washi tape.
Seriously, super easy. Maybe, 15, 20 minutes…and you get a super personalized, fun smash book or journal:
The colors make me smile and the lined paper is so much easier for me to work with than the various papers included in the Smash books. I like the simple, clean look of the lined background. Looking forward to adding and working this…not bad for a .37 cent journal!!
