I made this fun little journal with a 9" x 12" manila envelope. I painted the envelope them embellished it with colorful tape, a ladybug stamp, and flowers that I punched out. It has only 1 signature, 26 pages. I used a few pieces of designer paper, and copy paper. I added a few paper beads to the tails of the thread that I bound the journal with. This is a gift for a friend.
