I have been spending a bit of time, looking for projects you might enjoy. I found this cute bound journal and wanted to share it! Perfect for Spring!
The video tutorial I used for this WATERMELON JOURNAL is below. Jennifer, from “Sea Lemon” provides easy to follow videos on simple book binding. She is enjoyable to follow!
I think Jennifer does a great job with her step by steps! I will admit, the cut out wasn’t as easy for me, so I folded the cover directly and in half and cut it with scissors to straighten up my shape.
I also reinforced that edge by applying little pieces of torn washi tape. I like the way it looks, and it feels more finished and sturdy to me:)
I added washi to all the cover edges. Again, a little more sturdy.
It’s a fun one for 10-16 year olds who could do it solo:)
I loved this project and enjoy productive crafting during these times of quarantine.
