Meg's Garden 
Mini Diary 
By Sue Smyth 

Hi All 
Here is my take on the Sherlock album kit. Just to 
show you can covert it to a feminine look too.
I have used trinkets from the kit and
added a cheap gold frame. 

To make the pages I have adhered all of the journal pages
to a trimmed down manila folder. I have distressed the edges and
rubbed gold paint on the outsides, like the old
leather bound books.

I have then adhered all of the pages together on the manila
folder side. I have trimmed sturdy chipboard to fit the 
front and back and covered it with paper for the covers.
Then adhere a piece of ribbon over
the folded book before you affix 
the covers.

Materials List 

Happy Crafting
