Journal Gift

Another gift idea from Taylored Expressions is a personalized Password Journal.  I liked this idea for my own use because I can never keep up with the username and password for all of the different websites that I am enrolled in.  Taylor has a very nice download for the layout of this journal, but I decided to make my own on Microsoft Word.  The font is Calibri with font size 18 with a landscape orientation.

The pages are cut down to 3.5" widths and stacked. I printed out 4
pages on cardstock, so it is a total of 12 pages when stacked.  Next
chipboard is cut to 8.5" x 3.5" and put to the back of the cut
cardstock for support and stapled at the top. 

Next, the best part, customizing it! Since my favorite colors are
green and red, I chose green cs as the base of mine and purple
cs for a friends, one piece cut at 8.5" x 3.5", scored at 8" and
the second piece at 11" x 3.5", scored at 8.5" and 8.75". Red
tape is placed across the top of the stack and across the staples,
but not more than .5" from the top. The 11" x 8.5" is then
placed on top of the pages with the .25" wrapping around the
top and back. The 8.5" x 3.5" piece is taped in place on the
back.  The front is then decorated as desired.
