Scored big with a trip to Michaels this weekend. They had deeply discounted many little journals so inspired me to do altered journals for my end of school gift for my Reading Support students. At 29cents apiece how could I say no? Truly I could not have made them with my bind it all for this cost. So I suggest you check for those if you go in. I used Cricut Zooabaloo, Doodlecharms, with lots of Stickles , M's ribbon and some from my stash. I wanted to give them something to remember to read and WRITE all summer long. Hope these do the trick!
