Gratitude Journal

Sticking with the Christmas theme... I was asked to create a cover for a Christmas gratitude journal. This is bigger than the average card, it uses a whole sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock (folded in half). I don't know what I like better, the tasteful trim ribbon (that was sewn on the card) or the scalloped border from the tasteful trim die.

After we finished the front, they bound it to the inside sheets by sewing it together with a sewing machine (sorry I don't have a picture). It was pretty thick, with 10 or so sheets inside. The trick was to slice the raw edge after to create the finished look. (or all the pages inside would stick out farther than the brown card stock in varying lengths)

Definitely a fun project, I am glad I had help making all 75 of them!
