Journals make great gifts, but since they are blank slates, they need to be dressed up. This project is a quick way to thoughtfully wrap your next journal gift. The pre-painted ruffle trim adds the look of custom mixed-media painting without actually costing you any time. Plus, once the gift is unwrapped, the recipient has unique materials to repurpose into jewelry or just add to their craft stash.
Re-Craftable Journal Gift Wrap Project Directions:
Brush Iced Enamels Medium into heart bezel center.
Sprinkle turquoise Relique Powder over medium and shake off excess.
Slowly and evenly heat entire bezel with Heat-It Craft Tool until the enamel sets as desired, then set aside to cool.
Cut ruffle trim to wrap once around your journal.
Wrap velvet ribbon around ruffle trim to hide the center stitching of the trim.
Tie on your heart bezel pendant.
