These journals aren’t just a fun activity, they’re an excellent place to daydream, doodle and store your Artie Challenges! Here’s how you can make your own:
We used glue to and colored paper to cover ours, but you can decorate your journal however you want!
When making pages, cut or tear paper to size. (We cut our pages to 8” x 6”.)
Fold sheets in half and open back up. Divide pages into bundles of 4 or more. These stacks are called signatures.
Carefully staple each signature.
Attach signatures to your cover. We tied them in with string, as it will allow us to add more pages in the future.
