Oooh, I am in love with this creation! I took a plain envelope and covered it with pretty papers, then cut the sides open and turned it into a journal. I sewed the journal right to the fold in the envelope, and closed the flap with a magnet. Soooo gorgeous! The journal measures 8.75″ x 5.75″ and has fourteen pages to write or draw on, plenty of space for your poems, dreams, wishes, prayers or whatever you desire. EnJoy!
