Christmas is such a special time of the year with all the activities and gatherings of family and friends. Keep the memories of your Chistmas holiday each year by journaling in a Christmas journal.
Our 4th week of the Sizzix Triple Play blog hop is the Frame and Frame back die by Eileen Hull. There are so many uses for this die, especially this time of the year for Christmas photos. I chose to use it to create and decorate a Christmas journal.
To make the journal, you will need the following materials:
Frame and Frame Back, 3D Pro Scoreboards Die #656835 by Eileen Hull
Heavy card stock
Red and green acrylic paints
Adhesive – Zip Dry by Beacon
Cut the fabric 2″ larger than the opened journal on all sides. Center the journal and fold the fabric edges to the inside the cover, fold the raw edge back and glue. Cut fabric pieces out along the edge of the spine.
Paint the frame pieces solid red, red stripes and red dots.
Paint a Christmas tree or other motif centered on the bottom frame. Align the frame pieces and glue them together. Turn the small red frame turned catercorner. Glue the completed frame centered on the journal.
