Dragons Lair Den: Jolly Ole St Nick Journal

Hi everyone! It's me and I'm here to share my last post with Dragons Lair Den. I am thankful for the time I have been on the design team and being able to share a little bit of my take on DLD printables.
I created this mini Santa journal from a file folder which I cutdown and the finished size is a 3 1/2"x5" and that measures from the "creases" or three folds in the file folder.


I inked the spine with a green ink, let dry and then measured and marked four small holes at 1" intervals down the spine. I used a very thick needle to punch each hole.


I printed off the sage green sheet from the Victorian Christmas Collection-Card Papers and cut two 3 1/2"x5" pieces to fit the front and the back of the journal. I used the Christmas Merriment embossing folder and embossed both pieces before adhering to the journal. Next I printed out the Vintage Santa Card Kit and cut one of the Santa's out, inked the edges and then used pop dots to raise the image. I finished off the front with baker's twine, button, sequins, dew drops, tulle and a metal star. I also applied Stickles to the Santa's beard and hair.


I cut twenty sheets of notebook paper to fit the inside of the journal. Once folded in half I sewed the pages and tied off on the outside of the spine. I added fiber and ribbon also to make it more festive.


From the same Victorian Christmas Collection-Card Papers I printed off a burgundy sheet and cut it down to make an inside pocket. I added from the Vintage Santa Card Kit a label and flower to finish it off.


There you have it a simple little journal that can be used to jot down notes, keep up with receipts or whatever else you can think of. :-) Please be sure to check out the Dragons Lair Den for these printables and more. If you have any questions please let me know.
