However, the super nice and pretty journals can get expensive and sometimes the ugly ones on the clearance table are a tempting alternative. So I created a way to cover the not-so-pretty journals with a unique woven paper design to add color, creativity, and personality to my journal or sketchbook. This same technique can also be used to beautify and upcycle a diary, scrapbook, family albums, photo albums, baby books, and wedding albums.
