Pretty Personalized Journal

There's nothing better than getting a personalized gift that someone has taken the time to make specifically for you.  This is a sweet little journal that I made for my cousin for her birthday.  I bought the journal from Target and then decked it out with vintage fabric and jewelry pieces.

Spray adhesive is my best friend.  I use it on tons of projects and I love that its movable until it dries permanently.  I measured out the fabric to fit the cover of the book leaving a little room to tuck the edges.  I sprayed the fabric with spray adhesive, tucked the edges, sprayed again, and then pressed it onto the front back and insides of the journal.

I chose to cut her initial out of a coordinating color of felt, and embellished with swarovksi crystals.  I then attached the vintage jewelry pieces with E6000 glue and let it dry according to directions.  And there you have a lovely little keepsake that is one of a kind!!
