New Year's Journal

Make a journal for the new year to record your thoughts through out the year. You pick the date.

You need:

  • Autograph Book
  • Vinyl Numbers and Stars
  • Metallic Pony Beads
  • Metallic Cord
  • Imitation Leather
  • Tacky Glue
  • Scissors


Cut vinyl to fit so it wraps around the autograph book. Spread a thin layer of glue over the cover of the book making sure to get all the way to the edges. Position the vinyl over the glue. Spread glue over spine and back cover of the book.

Cut a piece of gold cord to 16". Lay the cord next to the spine of the book with 4" hanging below the book and the remainder above sticking up above the book. This will become the book mark. Wrap the vinyl around the rest of the cover pulling tight to sandwich in the cord. Let dry. Trim any vinyl that hangs over the edge of the book. Glue gold letters and stars to book. String gold pony beads on cord ends. Tie off. Trim.
