Lately in several of my layouts I've incorporated my journaling in the form of a scroll. It's great for when you have lengthy journaling or a story to tell with your page & don't want to take up too much room or simply don't have the room. It also makes for a unique embellishment to go along with your page.
I've been asked by a few to create a tutorial on how I go about making this scroll journaling--so here it is!
Step 1: Print your journaling on whichever media you plan on using. I tend to print my journaling on vellum. You can either mat your journaling or choose to leave it as is. I've done both ways on my pages.
My journaling tends to be 3" inches wide by 6" inches long. These measurements can vary based on where exactly you plan on placing your scroll. For the most part this is the measurement I've used.
Cut out two strips of paper from sturdy card stock. Make sure it's strong card stock since these will be the straps holding your journaling in place. Strips of paper are 1/2" an inch wide by 1 3/4" inches long.
You'll also need 4 brads.
Thanks for stopping by & I hope this tutorial helps some of you in storing lengthy journaling and/or stories.
