Make a Pocket Journal from Vintage Stationery
one Just-A-Note folded stationery sheet (or any heavy stationery/card stock cut to size)
vintage ledger paper
embroidery floss to match
paper stitching needle (I got mine from Making Memories a LONG time ago, but a denim or quilting needle might work too)
Measure the main part of the note and cut your ledger paper to fit leaving about 1/4 inch less at the top, bottom, and sides. I cut 5 pieces of ledger paper to make 10 pages when it's folded.
Pierce through the ledger paper and the note using the paper piercer about every 1/2 inch. Watch your fingers; that thing can get mean. Gees, I need a manicure.
You could even place a stamp on the front and address it, and send to a friend far away. I think I just might do that.
