Handmade Journal

We made this sweet handmade journal for my niece who said she wants to be a writer when she grows up (she is 7!)
They painted a lovely Waldorf wet-on-wet and glued it to heavy cardboard (the back of a sketch pad is a good weight) then we punched holes in the cardboard and matched with paper and tied a pretty ribbon!
It seemed like it may not close easily, so I added a decorative brad to wrap some yarn to use as a latch and added her intial charm! Easy and so pretty.I wouldn't mind one myself.  :)
