Inspiration journal with Start Ups

Make a journal to keep handy when inspiration strikes.  I made this journal for my  Buttons Galore and More DT post.  The journal is 5×8 and the perfect size to keep bedside or to tote along with you.  I like to use spiral bound notebooks for several reasons.  The spiral binding is a great place to keep the pen handy and it allows you to open the notebook only to the page you need.  To make this inspiration journal follow these simple directions:

Tools and Materials:

Scissors, two pattern papers and a tag,two flowers, paint, paint brush, rub-ons, stylus and Start Ups large tags and Fabri Tac.


Cut two coordinating pieces of pattern paper to fit on the front.  Adhere the two papers with Fabri Tac.  Adhere flowers and let dry.

Paint large tag  and let dry.  Apply rub-ons and adhere to pre-cut tag.  Adhere tag as shown.  Embellish with flowers
