What you need to get started:


2 pieces of cardboard (the front and back of an empty cereal box works great)


lined paper


a pencil


markers or crayons


yarn or ribbon


glue or tape


scissors


choose a cover: wrapping paper, The Sunday Comics or plain white to decorate


hole punch


Instructions:


Start by making two pieces of cardboard the same size. One is used for the front cover, the other the back cover. Use glue or tape to cover each cardboard piece separately with your choice of wrapping paper, comics or plain paper. After, take some lined paper and cut it the same size as the covers. Use as many sheets as you like. Then, place all papers and covers in this order: bottom cover facing down, next all the lined paper and on top, put your front cover facing you. Next, line up the left sides of all papers and covers. On the left, use your pencil to mark three places where you will make holes- one hole toward the top, one in the middle and one toward the bottom. Keep the papers and covers lined up on the left, and make the holes with a hole punch. If you need help, ask a grown up. The last step is to take yarn or ribbon and cut three pieces about 7 inches long. Put one strand through each hole and make a loose bow. Keeping it loose will provide enough room for the pages to turn. You can decorate your front cover with any final touches you may like. Enjoy and have fun using your journal!
