Accordion Books

Do you have pictures you'd like to add to your journal but they just won't fit? If you want to use one large picture fold it accordion style, saving the back page to glue into your journal. Or, if you have a lot of smaller pictures, too many to fit your page, consider gluing them to a piece of cardstock folded accordion style.

You can try out different shapes, folded in different ways.

Journaling Bookmark Collection

 This is just a sample of the kinds of things you can use to bookmark your journal:

paper clips of all kinds--with or without ribbon
binder clips--add decorative tape if you like
miniature clothes pins--they come in colors now
people binder clips I found in school supplies
a mouse with a really long tail

For tabs:

round stickers--either 2 together or folded over the page in half
decorative tape folded over
