Earlier this week, Journal Your Way by the venerable Gwen Diehn published in paperback for the first time! In celebration, we would like to share a free project with you. This choose-your-own-adventure journaling book gives you the tools you need to pick the paper, binding, and cover that you like, and mix and match them to build a truly custom journal. I chose my favorite binding and cover techniques to share, which you’ll find below in separate pdfs.

First, here are the tools and materials, along with a guide for choosing paper.

And finally, the beautiful sewn-in cover.

Journals with the leather covers like this one have always made me want to stow away on a river boat and write about my adventures. That's weird, isn't it?

I hope you’ll enjoy this little gift. And, get yourself a copy of Journal Your Way for more building blocks like these, and some cool surprises! (Hint: There are envelopes inside the front and back covers containing cool bonus materials. I LOVE books with pockets!)
