Nature Journal Tutorial


I think this home made nature journal is just so cool!
Here are the supplies you will need...

cardstock
pages for the inside (I used 7 pages from a small sketch pad that were about 6"x9")
a hole punch
a large twig
a rubber band
decorating materials (stickers paper crayons scissors glue...etc)

Step 1: cut your card stock 1/2 and inch larger than your pages.

Step 2: Layer your pages and card stock cover pieces together.  Then punch 2 holes through all of the papers and card stock in the side that will be your binding.
Step 3: thread one end of the elastic through each of the holes. (you will need to stretch it).

Step 4 wrap each end of the elastic around the twig.

Step 5: Decorate

Step 6- Fill it with your nature treasures


Step 7- head outside to find more treasures to put in your journal :)

You're right, this is very cool! :) I love nature journals but this one is so great because they make it themselves.

Thanks for sharing with us and hope to see you again next Friday for our Outdoor Play link-up
