Picture of Journal (cardboard & duct tape)
These are directions for making a very easy and inexpensive journal.  The following steps will produce a book slightly smaller than 7"X10" with 20 pages. All steps can be adjusted to make a variety of sizes

The supplies are very basic

I am going to be attempting this craft for my wedding and I am curious if there is any meaning behind the "*" on the cardboard and duct tape? I have browsed the entire how to numerous times and I can't seem to find where this is referenced. I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything!

Thanks for sharing this... It is exactly what I was looking for!

Hi BrookM1,

Sorry I didn't get back toy sooner for some reason I was just aware today that you made this comment!

"*" means nothing in the instructions. I just put it near the Cardboard and duct tape in the supply list because that is how i described the journal.

Good luck and have fun!

I'm sending this link to JACK!
P.S. You MADE that paper, didn't you???
