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.
