How to make a travel journal

I made a travel journal for our trip to Europe last year. Then I left it at home.

Step one, get a journal and a map of the place you are going.

Cut two pieces of map about an inc bigger all the way around than the journal.

Modge podge the cover.

I put the back on first and then trimmed where it overlapped the front, realizing later that I didn’t need to do that.

Then I put on the front side and used a blow dryer to speed up the drying because we were leaving the next morning.

Flip it over and trim the corners so when you fold them in you don’t get a crease there.

Fold over and glue.

I used scrapbook paper for the liners.
