This time I used a piece of wallpaper border with a pretty banana palm design. I laced a green ribbon through the spine and covered it with a palm leaf green piece as an accent. Again, the wallpaper was not heavy enough by itself to serve as a journal cover. Plus there was writing on the back. So I backed the wallpaper with a piece of maroon card stock for a clean finish inside.
A very simple little book but nice, I think. Good size for a purse.
