Valentine Gift Ideas by Yolie Burke

Posted on January 09 2018

Hello, this is Yolie with today's project share. Celebrating GALentines or Valentine's this year? Here is a quick gift idea; I made a set of 3 journals using Rinea's Love Variety Pack.



Supplies:
Each journal has 20 pages. First, trim 5 sheets of pattern paper and plain paper to 8"h x 10"w. I used a mix of graph paper and sketch paper in between the pattern papers. Score each page at 5".
    Arrange your 10 pages and secure with binder clips. Staple in the center, top, and bottom. If you are sewing the binding, below is a quick tip.


    To help to keep a straight stitch, I used a strip of washi tape slightly off the scoreline to help as a guide.

    .
    Next, using a ruler, trim off the excess with a rotary cutter.



    I trimmed a 3" strip of the Pink Starstruck Foiled paper and used a scallop die to create a pretty edge. I used the larger scallop die edge on the Glossy Gold Foiled paper.



    I glued the foiled papers with Helmar's Craft & Hobby PVA Glue to adhere the borders to the binding. I also die cut a few stitched rectangles on the Gold Glossy Foiled paper and added the sentiments and macaroon image.

    I bundled the trio with black & white twine. They are now ready for gift giving.
