Goofy Craft – Journal Bookmarks

If you have been reading this blog for a while you have probably noticed that I like to tuck items in books. I love opening a book and finding a photo or piece of memorabilia that I had forgotten about. It always brings back happy memories. I was wondering how I could tuck parts of my trip journal into a book and decided that a bookmark would be ideal. These would make a great gift to those people who traveled with you on your Disney vacation. Every time they go to read a book they’ll be reminded about a happy part of their trip.

Journal Bookmarks
Colored strips of paper
White card-stock
rubber cement
1) Pick a short entry from your travel journal. Type it into a word box in a word processing program. Adjust the box so it is six or seven inches long and an inch to an inch and a half wide. Place a thin frame around the word box. Format it as much as you would like.
2) Print out your journal box on white card-stock and cut it 1/4 inch from the outside of the frame. Cut out a colored strip of paper that is 3/8 inch wider on all sides than your journal box.
3) Glue the journal box to the colored strip. The rubber cement will dry quickly. Punch a hole in the top if you want to and attach two pieces of yarn as long or as short as you like. Tuck it into a book for a memorable souvenir.

This makes a lovely gift. If you don’t have any journaling ready than ask your group for their favorite memories. You’ll be reminded of happy times every time you peek inside that book.
