Mother-daughter Journal


I found this project on Pinterest and thought it would be a fun way to connect with Maddie.  She is the type of girl that loves gifts and secrets.  I hid it on top of her pillow the other day.  I wrote that we could leave little messages to one another and then hide it somewhere for the other to find.  I'm still waiting for it to turn up somewhere.  I asked her to use her cursive when she writes, so it will be handwriting practice for her as well!

You can download the cute labels (they have one for boys, too) here.  I decorated it by covering the outside entirely with scrapbook paper.  There's a great tutorial for doing this here.  I hadn't thought to use washi tape on the binding--I may have to see if I have any that matches. There are many possibilities for making this cute little journal, but the important thing is just to have something special between you and your daughter.

Here's another fun journal-decorating idea:  Fabric-covered Prayer Journal
