ART Journal

Here's an easy book to make for your kids, or yourself!! This Art Journal uses one of SU's premade little chipboard books. All you have to do is decorate!! Instead of removing the cover, you can always use the spiral punch, lining up the holes and punch the cover cardstock to fit the cover. I have done this many times.

  1. Remove front cover from On Board Art Journal. Adhere Riding Hood Red textured card stock to front of cover. Remove card stock from holes in chipboard cover using hobby blade. Replace cover. Alternatively, you may use the Spiral punch to create holes in card stock before adhering to cover.
  2. Punch circle from Whisper White textured card stock using 3/4" Circle punch. Adhere circle to center of Kiwi Kiss die cut. Adhere flower to cover.
  3. Cut "Art" from Basic Black card stock using Sizzix Big Shot for Stampin' Up! and Serif Essentials Alphabet Bigz die. Adhere letters to cover using Stampin' Dimensionals.
