{washi tape} summer journals {tutorial}

I shared this over at Brown Paper Packages
a few weeks ago, but if you missed it here it is again! 

I love summer time!  So happy it’s finally here!  Yay!
There are so many fun things to do this time of year!
One thing we do every summer is that each kiddo has a summer journal.

Here’s how we made our journals this year!

summer journal 1
 
You’ll need:
composition books
washi tape
scissors
a rotary cutter
ribbon
cardstock
 
summer journal 2 summer journal 3 summer journal 4
 
First you’ll need to remove the top layer from your composition book.
(You don’t want the bright colors showing up underneath your washi tape!)
Then you’ll put your washi tape on your notebook in whatever pattern & colors you like.
 
summer journal 5 summer journal 6 summer journal 7
 
Then trim off the excess washi tape from around your edges. 
Don’t those notebooks look so fun?
 
summer journal 9 summer journal 11 summmer journal 10
 
These two journals are for my girls, so I added some ribbon
& a tag to make them a little more girlie & cute!
 
summer journal 12
 
Now they are all ready to fill with some fun summer memories!
