I didnt have any ribbons long enough so I cut off some a piece of beautiful stretchy lace for the closure. I also didnt have any beads to fit over the heavy binding thread. =( Im sure who ever finds this will have fun putting new beads on it right away.
This is the inside front cover and first page. I made a little tag for secrets and added a butterfly to the flip pocket. The butterfly is on a spring so it flutters.
On the left under the tag you can see the small erasable board I made. The board has a magnate so is removable for writing front and back.
This is the inside front pocket.
I opened the back up so there is also an usable pocket there too. I put several pieces of papers, words, icons, etc, like happy mail in both the front and back pockets.
I had a ball making this, and will drop it off soon as i get the info printed out at the library. I hope it finds the perfect someone and they will enjoy spending time painting, drawing, and journaling in it.
