What you needa journal (mine is an "Ampad Project Organizer," which I bought for $3.50)
about six inches of elastic
glue (hot glue, tacky glue, Elmer's)
envelopes or small bags
a glue stick
What you do
2. Find the circumference of your market and glue stick (glue stick = 2.5", marker = 1.5"). Add an extra 1.5" to that number and cut pieces of elastic to that size.
3. Next, cut a piece of cardstock to the size of your back cover. Cover the back cover with glue.
4. With the back cover open, fold the elastic in half and glue it down. Repeat with second piece of elastic. Now place your cardstock on top of the back cover and elastic. Close your journal and lay a heavy book on it for 10-15 minutes until the glue has dried and set.
