This instructable will show you how to create your own soft-covered journal with a personalized cover, and crayons to go along with it. For all of you who can't sew, no worries! You won't have to stitch one thread.
Step 1: Materials you'll need
-White or light colored cloth, the same size as a piece of paper
-Either double sided tape OR tape from a lint roller
-Aluminum foil (i accidentally showed parchment paper in the picture, but you need foil.)
-About 5" of yarn, ribbon, or string
-1 piece of foam board, slightly larger than a sheet of paper
-1 large button
-Smaller buttons for decoration (optional)
-Hot glue gun
-10-15 sheets of paper
-Computer with a software program like Microsoft Publisher (that's what i used)
1 sheet of Card stock
Step 2: Making the journal: Making the base of the cover
Then take a piece of scotch tape and tape the pieces back together. Only put Tape on one side. This allows you to bend the cover like a regular journal or book.
