Hello, Petaloo Fans! It's Kathy here with a fun activity for your tweens. This summertime journal is a quick, easy and affordable project. It's perfect for taking along on a long car trip, tucking into a camper's suitcase, carrying on an airplane or taking to Grandma's house.
The base is a standard steno notebook. These are awesome, because the back cover is so sturdy you don't need a desk. This is such a simple make that your tween could put this together all on her own. (I did not make one for a boy, but you could do so easily!)
I decorated the cover with Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness paper, then added on chipboard elements and stickers for extra fun.
What tween wouldn't love to journal in this cute notebook. Plenty of pink Petaloo posies make it extra special!
Decorate the inside cover with more designer papers and create a simple slash pocket to hold journaling cards. The cards can be glued into the journal along with photos.
These fun journal cards will look great when added to the inside pages. You could add postage stamps and envelopes to the pocket to encourage your tween to write letters home from camp or grandma's house. Tuck in a hot pink pen, and you're good to go!
Wishing you a fun filled summer!
