I finally finished my journal from the Winter Angel Roundup! It's a composition book cut in half, so it's a really handy size and as you can see, I'm still lovin' the Miss Moxie Paper from TAC!
I cut off the edge of the inside pages to create a place for tabs. (LOVE my Mini File Tab punch!) This is where I'll organize creative ideas, scrapbook layouts, etc. Maybe now that my notebook is all dolled up with ribbons, I'll get organized! Ha!
I also came up with a neat closure with a hair band, which creates a little pen holder and holds the book closed. (See the photos below for a little more detail.) The coordinated Miss Moxie Hardware and Ribbons made this really fun to put together. Photo Turns are here, loops are here, and they come in cool colors here! (The loop is the little thingy I used to make my ribbon bookmark.)
The trick for the closure is to cut one large hole and two small holes in the back cover, creating a place for the hair band to loop around the extra large eyelet to hold fast to the back cover, while coming inside the book to make the pen holder. It then weaves back to the back cover so that it can wrap around and catch a large brad, mounted on the front cover. Hopefully the pictures will explain.
