Keeping the Journals Closed

This method has proved to be long lasting and simple. 

Materials needed: 
  • scissors
  • two brads
  • duct tape
  • rubber band
  1. Using a pair of scissors, gently dig a small hole about an inch from the open edge halfway between the top and bottom of the journal. 
  2. Push the brad through from the front and secure the inside with duct tape.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to the back cover. 
  4. Take the rubber band and  loop around the brad on the back cover. I twist the rubber band around the brad to help it stay.
  5. Pull the rubber band around to the other side and loop it around the brad on the front cover.
