I like to buy these little dollar journals. Sometimes I find them at the Dollar store, sometimes a Michaels. I simply make something new to glue to the covers. I've done many different things in the past, such as adding handmade fabric flowers, using wool roving, and my favorite, sari silk. But these are the latest ones. I painted several pieces of canvas in different colors. I then cut the canvas to fit the covers, sewed, painted, and glued. Voila, new journals with cute handmade covers. PS I got these journal on clearance for 50 cents apiece.
