Making 38 gratitude journals for a church Gratitude Dinner was a blast. Especially because I invited two of my favs over to help, Heather & Kelly.
The journals were purchased two for $1 at The Dollar Tree and originally looked like this.
Step one is covering the cover with burlap colored paper using hot glue. To make sure they adhered good I also ironed them!
Next I covered them with burlap, using hot glue again. I took a paper towel as a barrier between the iron and burlap and ironed the burlap cover in place.
After I trimmed the edges with sewing scissors.
Then I added flat lace and embellished with hand made rosettes. The finishing touch was a little bling and more lace.
