Hey Guys! Today’s post is a little bit different than usual, a how-to: DIY pretty mid-term academic journal.
The reason I decided to do this type of post today is that last year, near the end of summer, I decided that I wanted to get a journal with all the days of the year in it that I could write homework assignments for college and to-do lists in.
But when I went shopping for one, I noticed that all the cool academic journals with the entire school year going from July to the next September were all ugly, plain black leather ones, and all the pretty looking notebooks were just plain lined pages and I wanted my journal to be both useful and nice looking so I came up with the idea to make one myself.
So I made one myself and used it all year round until it came to July and I decided I should make a new one for this year.
Here is what I used to make it:
1. A plain mid-term academic journal (you can get these a most book shops for around €8.99)
2. A nicely designed gift bag, preferably two different colours (my one was €3.80 from The Card Company)
3. Any clear, extra strong glue.
4. A scissors
P.S. A special thanks to my friend Aimee who helped me figure out how to make the first one last year xx
