So to start us off I am going to show you what to do using two different color envelopes to make it a bit easier to understand! The first thing you do is take one flap of the envelope add some adhesive and slide it into another

Do that as many times as you like so you get a good amount for your journal.

Cut your cover to size, I am using this fun holographic pink paper for mine!

Your going to want to punch a hole ( I used a metal punch for jewelry) on each side of the journal.

Do the same for the cover. Start your string going through the cover on both sides.

Then do the same to your stack of envelopes and tie tightly! That's it your all done! So easy right?
