Handmade Monday: Watercolor Wings Embellished Journal using Stampin' Up! Products

Happy Monday!

I have a fun gift idea to share with you today...because who doesn't like to get a gift every now and again?! Let's face it, there's nothing like receiving a thoughtfully handmade gift! The idea for this gift came about when I was doing some Christmas shopping and ran across the Moleskine journal section of Barnes and Nobles. I found a mini set of ruled journals that came in a 3 pack and couldn't pass them up. I thought they would be super cute to customize and give this Christmas.

Check out the video tutorial below. I have a full list of supplies for this project below the video.

Embellished Journal Gift Packaging
         
1. Slide your embellished journal into the kraft bag and crease the top of the bag where it meets the top of the journal inside.
2. Remove the journal and crease the flap again. Cut one of the tea lace doilies in half and adhere it in the center of the creased flap using snail adhesive.
3. On a scrap piece of whisper white cardstock, stamp "Just for you" and the small detailed butterfly from the Watercolor Wings stamp set, in lost lagoon classic ink.
4. Use the 1-3/4" circle punch to punch out the image.
5. Use the 2" circle punch to punch a piece of smoky slate cardstock. Adhere the 1-3/4"circle to the 2" circle using snail.
6. Cut about 15 inches of silver metallic thread. Run snail along the back of the 2" circle and wind the thread decoratively along the back creating loops that over hang the 2" circle.
7. Use the 2-3/8" scallop circle punch to punch a piece of lost lagoon cardstock. Adhere the 2" circle to the front of the scallop using stampin dimensionals and add a small jewel rhinestone to the center of the butterfly.
8. Adhere the scallop circle to the doily using snail.
9. Place your embellished journal inside the gift bag and seal using the clothespin.
10. Give to someone special! :)
