Traveler’s Journal Feature: Covers

Hey loves! Happy December! How are you all liking the new Papertrey Team Blog so far? I know there has been a lot of change going on lately, but rest assured that everyone behind the scenes is working together to make sure everything continues on smoothly for you. Let’s get into today’s projects.

We are working with Journal Covers today and I have two projects to share very different ways of using them. To start off I put together this felt Cover Pocket by die cutting the cover and hand sewing the two sides. I have an advent tag craft inside and they easily slip in and out of this fun pocket.

Using the felt gives a truly homey touch and keeps it bendable enough to make the advent tags go in and out very easily.

My second project uses pattern paper to create a traditional journal cover. I really wanted a more structured feel to it though so I added a second layer of white cardstock along the inside to keep it nice and sturdy.

There won’t be any bends or tears with this cover and it was so easy to make. Being able to use a piece of pattern paper to create your own journal cover is one of my favorite things about these sets.
