I have made some dividers for the Parisian DayDream journal, I need to make some for my journal next:
These journals were made using manila file folders and the long post that follows is a picture tutorial on how to make your own journal. If you do not understand some of my instructions, please let me know:
I cut both folders 6" from each side of the center folds which measured 3/4". The height of the folder was cut at 8.25".
I then measured about 1.75" from the top and bottom of the center edge to punch holes down both sides of the folds for the binder rings.
Next I cut 2 pieces of cardboard 8.25" by just shy of 6" to leave room for the punched holes.
I used glue to tack down the cardboard pieces to the bottom file folder.
To make the flap to close the journal, cut one piece of the manila folder 2" by 4.5". Use a corner rounder on one end.
Now the fun part begins!! I used papers from the Parisian DayDream Printable Journal Kit designed by Tsunami Rose Designs to decorate.
To make the dividers for the inside, I took a 8.5 x 11 piece of white cardstock, scored it in the center and folded to 8.5 x 5.5. I trimmed .5" off the end to make the piece 8" x 5.5". I inked the edges on both sides and then adhered decorative paper and tabs to the cardstock and punched holes to line up with the binder rings.
Here's another look at the journals:
Thanks for sticking it out to the end! Enjoy making your own journals!
