I decided to spend a little more time on the party favors for Harper's Birthday Party, since I had to do very little preparation for the party. I did not plan it this way, but I was able to use supplies I had on hand and did not have to buy anything for this party favors. It felt so good to use up some of my scraps as well as recycle some cardboard from the recycle bin.
First I cut out the cardboard pieces. I used this tutorial as a guide.
I cut 4 sheets of plain paper in half for each journal. Then I sewed along the middle crease.
I am always afraid that I am not going to have enough so I made 22 journals to be on the safe side.
I used scrap paper that I had on hand plus some cards I had saved from various celebrations. I cut out different pieces by hand and also using my sizzix. I labeled all the envelopes. Then I placed everything in the envelope and tied each one with twine.
Hopefully the girls will know what to do with it. Really all they need is a glue stick and an imagination.
