Journal — By LeNae Gerig



  1. Apply brown ink to the binding and edges of the binder. Cut the burgundy Christmas paper to fit the front and back covers. Round the corners that will line up with the rounded corners on the binder. Ink the paper edges and glue to the binder cover.
  2. Use a pencil to mark the areas that will be punched on the cover. Use the Big Bite to make standard eyelet holes.
  3. Set two rows of eyelets 2 1/2” apart (horizontally) and each eyelet spaced 1 1/2” (vertically) from one another in each row. Thread the ribbon from the inside bottom and weave up in a crisscross manner, threading twice though each eyelet in rows two and three. Knot the ribbon in the inside of the binder. Use the ribbon straps on the inside of the binder to store a pen for your journal.
  4. Sand the green Great Big Brad edges. Punch a circle of the burgundy paper and glue to the center of the brad. Layer the brown and white flowers and secure the flowers to the binder through the top eyelet. Adhere the paper ribbon words to the bottom left and binding. Place lined paper inside the binder.
