As the year comes to a close, it's tradition to reflect on the things we're most grateful for. Whether it's simple moments spent expressing creativity or making memories with loved ones, we encourage you to make a gratitude list this season ❤️A fun way to do this is by creating your own gratitude journal. Today we're sharing simple DIY instructions on how to do so!
DIY Gratitude Journal
Using a store-bought journal or altered book, adorn the page edges with washi tape. If this is a gift, it's extra thoughtful to choose a color scheme the recipient will love!
Tape a glassine envelope to the first page of the journal. This can be filled with souvenirs that remind you of beloved moments (e.g., ticket stubs) or gratitude prompts as seen below.
A few gratitude prompt ideas:
- Who are you most grateful for?
- What makes you laugh the hardest?
- Where is your favorite place in the world?
- What is something money can't buy that you're grateful for?
- What is a challenge you're grateful for?
Tuck journaling cards throughout the pages to provide space for brief thoughts or inspiring quotes.
Choose your favorite writing tools and keep them nearby! For a lovely packaging idea, wrap the journal in burlap and tuck in pencils.
