Explorer's Journal and Video

Explorer's Journal and Video

Tricia Morris

The National Parks collection features a gorgeous handmade book project called the Explorer's Journal.


The book is constructed with a combination of papers, heavy duty paper bags, waxed linen thread, buttons and cutparts.


The "peek-a-boo" spine reveals the seven inner signatures while also showcasing the beautiful stitch work on the outside of the cover.



The project kit includes a 12x12 sheet of cutaparts designed to decorate the outside front cover and base of each bag.


We also added a four-pack of buttons to enhance the paper tabs on the outside covers along with plenty of extra waxed linen thread to sew them into place.


Deluxe members will receive a link to the detailed assembly instructions for this project, and we also thought a video tutorial would be extremely helpful. Don't you agree?

We can't wait to see your finished version of this project. Happy stitching!
