Flower and Bead Craft ProjectSmall 3-D Flower Journal
Level: Moderate
Click here to create the matching Post-It Note Holder

Materials
LIQUID LAMINATE
ZIP DRY

Small, undecorated journal (for the sample a 3 1⁄2” X 5 1⁄2” journal was used.)
Fabric with small flowers and leaves that can be cut out separately
Watercolor paper or heavy card stock large enough to hold the selected flowers and leaves. Select paper thick enough so that the LIQUID LAMINATE will not soak through.
Micro no-hole gold beads
Fiber embedded tissue or thin mulberry paper large enough to cover the journal outside, folded under 1⁄2”, with the corners folded as if making a bed.
Two pieces of paper for the inside covers
Two 6” pieces of 1/4/” ribbon

Instructions:
1. Glue the cover paper to the journal with the ZIP DRY, folding the corners in as if making a bed, and folding ½” all around the inside of the journal.
2. Adhere the spine paper in place with ZIP DRY and do the same with the inside cover papers and ribbons.
3. Cut out the flowers and use the LIQUID LAMINATE to decoupage them to the water color paper. Allow to dry before cutting them out.
4. After the flowers are cut out, bend the petals slightly to give them a 3-D look.
5. Attach the flowers and leaves to the journal (refer to the photo for placement ideas). Put a drop of glue in the center of each flower and sprinkle with the tiny micro beads.
