Mini-Make Monday

Last week I made a tri-fold pocket from my printable Traveler's Notebook insert pages and a matching tag from one of my journal cards. See how it's done here:
 

 

Here are some more details about how it's made:

 
Supplies Needed for DIY Traveler's Notebook Tri-Fold Pocket and Tag
 
Printable Traveler's Notebook insert pages
Printable Journal Cards
Circle Punch
Hole Punch
ScissorsSewing Machine or
Washi Tape
Ribbon  & Tulle
 
 
These steps are all illustrated in the video above.
 
 
Step One
 
Print two sets of pages back to back and trim
 
Step Two
 
Using a 2" circle punch, punch a half circle in the left side of the page that you want to be the top of the pocket and then line the pages up with the right side of one page on the bottom, and the left side (the one you just punched) on the top.
 
Step Three
 
Now sew or washi tape the pages together along the right, left and bottom edges of the center pages that you just stacked.  This will create a pocket in the middle.
 
Step Four
 
Now fold first the left side over and then the right side over and to create your tri-fold page.  Unfold the pages and slip them into your traveler's notebook elastic where you want your pocket to be.
 
Step Five
 
Create the tag by sewing, gluing or taping to journal cards together, the bottom edge of one card to the top edge of the other.
 
Step Six
 
Fold the corners of the top part of the tag back to back (don't crease, just lightly fold) and snip the edges diagonally with scissors.  This will create a tag top.  Now use a hole punch to punch a hold in the top of your tag and add ribbon and decorate as desired.

I'm so thrilled to share more about my latest project with you!  I've collaborated with my instagram friend Nichole who owns the shop Goosekeeper Designs and we've created a Thanksgiving Celebration with fun products, freebies, prizes, prompts and more!

We are both so excited about it and I hope you'll join in with us!

The Heart of Thanksgiving - Remembering His Benefits

You’re invited to join Nichole @goosekeeperdesigns and Melissa @pinkpaperpeppermints in a 4 week art journaling celebration of Thanksgiving!  Beginning Friday October 20, 2017

 

What it’s about:

Beginning Friday, October 20th we're going to enter His gates with Thanksgiving in our hearts and enter His courts with praise!

Each week will be a simple meditation on Who God is to us and what He's done for us based on Psalm 103:1-5.

 

We’ll spend time thanking and praising Him by choosing to journal, write scripture, create art, hand-letter a scripture, paint, collage, whatever that creative thing is that makes our heart sing!

 

Finally, we’ll share our art with each other on Instagram by using the hashtag #myheartofthanksgiving

 

 

The Goodies!

Nichole has designed a limited edition Dash Dori and Melissa has designed a coordinating Traveler’s Notebook insert for journaling during the THOT celebration!  Plus die cuts, journal cards, stickers and more!  We’ll be thrilled if you use them during our celebration, but they aren’t required for participating.

 

Prizes!

Everyone who participates in the celebration each week and posts a photo with the hashtag #myheartofthanksgiving will receive a digital goodie bag from Nichole and Melissa! Be sure to tag Nichole @goosekeeperdesigns and Melissa @pinkpaperpeppermints so they can see your creations!
