Making a Journal: Part 1

Hello out there! Today, I am embarking on what I *think* will be a 3-part series of how to make a hard-covered journal. The first part, today’s feature, shows you how to make a hard cover using chipboard.

I created a YouTube video with a step-by-step process:

I mention in the video that I will list all of the dimensions in an easy to-access blog post, so here they are:

  • The left and right chipboard pieces = 4.75 x 8.5
  • The middle chipboard piece (spine) = 1.5 x 8.5
  • The left and right inside paper pieces = 4.5 x 8
  • The middle inside paper piece (spine) = 1.5 x 8
