It. Always. Happens.
Please. Don’t tell me. I’ll be happier not knowing, I’m guessing.
No wait, let me guess: Your stalker rainbow appeared again?
Ha ha, very funny. No, that’s not it. It’s actually relatively simple this time.
You see, I journal. Every night, for the past 2 and a half years or so! And frequently (but not regularly) for the year and a half before that. But I digress.
Good, inexpensive journals are limited. I really like ones that have card and letter holders in the back, just on the off-chance somebody will send me something. (I’m a bit of a pack-rat when it comes to things like letters. And things from people.) So the journal that I used up most recently had one in the back, and nobody sent me something worth keeping during that time.
And this current journal? It’s lovely. I really like it! But it doesn’t have a card-holder in the back. So, naturally, this is when people start mailing me things. Now don’t get me wrong, I love mail! I’m thrilled at the mail! I’m annoyed at the journal.
So I decided to add a letter-holder.
DIY Book Cover Letter Holder
What I did was I found a piece of cardstock that was a suitable color. I then folded the two shorter sides to have a double fold. (It makes a zig-zag; the edge points in.) I then glued it to the inside back cover. It’s not the tidiest I’ve ever made, but it should be functional. And if not, I’ll probably be able to take it out and start over.
One thing of note: if you can cut at a bit of an angle, that would probably be better. You want the most “height” (so the most folded-under-ness) to be at the part where you open it. So, you glue down the two shorter sides and one of the longer sides. You make sure that the other larger side has extra fold-space, so that it can open further.
If you have any questions, let me know! Happy Thursday, everyone!
