Photo-Covered Journal via Elsie+Emma

“We used the Canon Pro-100 printer to print two photos, slightly larger than our journal cover size. We printed a color and black and white photo from my home for the front and back cover of the journal on this huge semi-gloss photo paper. Again, we chose the Pro-100 for the quality of the blacks in the black and white photo. Plus, the size of the printer made it easier to print both photos on one sheet. However, if changed the orientation of the photo, you could definitely make this work with the MG6320.

Supplies needed: A blank journal, 2 printed photos (measure your journal cover and add half an inch to the width and height to get an image that’s easy to work with), scissors, fabric, Mod Podge.

Step 1: Cover the front cover with mod Podge, leaving the spine untouched. Adhere your photo to the cover. Allow it to dry completely. Use scissors to trim away the excess so that the photo is flush with the front cover. Repeat with the back cover.

Step 2: To create a flexible, fabric-covered spine, just cut a piece of fabric 3 inches wide (larger if your journal is super thick) and the height of your journal. Use Mod Podge to adhere the fabric to the spine, pressing it into the dips around the spine. Allow it to dry completely.
