Here is my journal cover. I used wool felt for the outside. The flower is three-dimensional with beads in the middle. Most of the stitching is done by machine except for the blanket stitching around the edges. If the holes for the rings look a little off-center to you, that is because they are. I wanted to use my three-ring punch (yes I only using two holes) to punch my paper for the journal. It was a hard battle between balance and ease. Ease won. I still have a few more ideas for adding decoration, but for right now it is ready to start adding journal pages.
