Easy DIY Journal!

I am finishing up my "dear diary" journal and was thinking about what my next journal should be. I really love the leather journals that Barnes and Noble offers and I believe my last 3 have been like this but after watching all the creative people out there I decided to make my own. I was at Micheals looking at their different scrap papers and found this gorgeous woven piece and thought that I could make a journal and use that as my cover. 

The cover just feels fantastic. My next challenge was how to bind my book. I make alot of my own inserts for my Midori and so I used that idea along with some book binding videos that I have seen on Youtube. It took me about an hour to put together and I just love it!!

If you would like to see how it turned out check out my video!!
