Winter Journal cover idea using paper and embellishments

For me, winter is the best season to get my craft on. I love having a book on hand to journal my thought into and a mini-book seemed perfect! Today I’m sharing a Winter Journal cover idea that is easy to make!

I seriously think that making a winter journal is a great idea if you live in the Midwest. The long winters get to us and it’s nice to jot down thoughts and have something pretty to look at 🙂

Supplies you’ll need:

Fabric sheets, glitter paper, alphas, vellum, wood veneers, doilies, and adhesive

adhesive fabric paper

The Amplify Scissors are the perfect choice to cut paper that has texture on them- like glitter paper. I also crumpled some vellum and cut those with the Amplify scissors, these scissors make it very easy to cut slippery vellum too!

I wanted to build a teal-colored cover, so I chose some fabric and vellum to be my textures. The vellum adds a frost-like feel to the cover.

I then glued my papers and vellum onto to cover. I added glitter paper and doilies to add some layers. I then used the Amplify Scissors to trim off the excess overhang.


I added some final touches like- wood veneers and frilled paper and my Winter journal cover idea has come to life!

A little touch of mixed media on this one, but it’s really simple to put together. I think the fun color combo is really uplifting! journal cover idea
