Mini Journal With a Gift Bag

Hello everyone.  I hope you are all warm and cozy and that your weekend is off to a great start.  I am snuggled under the covers and keeping warm.

Today I have the journal and gift bag that I made to match yesterday's card.  If you missed that, click here to see this pretty little card.  So let's start with the journal.


This is just one of the little journals and you really don't need many supplies to make it.  You will need:

Mini composition notebook
3 Girl JAM Harvest Gold crinkle ribbon
K & Co - Tim Coffey Designer Mat Pad
Green paper tape from Target
K & Co - Susan Wingate embossed stickers
Adhesive





And for the bag:
Small brown paper pag
Harvest Gold 3 Girl JAM ribbon
Tattered Angels - Tiger Lily glimmer spray
Flowers from my stash
Adhesive

The little notebook was so simple to make.  Cut your pages to the desired size and adhere to your book.  DON'T forget to do the inside covers too.   Seal the binding with the tissue tape.  Adhere your sticker.  Spray your bag with Glimmer Mist and let dry.  Punch holes in the top of your bag and string ribbon through them.  Tie into a bow when the bag and card are placed inside.  Adhere the flower and other decorations to the bag.  I used Scotch "Quick Dry" for this.

Here are all 3 pieces:




Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to take some time to enjoy the little things.
