For those who enjoy getting crafty, these super cute DIY photo journals are the perfect budget-friendly DIY project. These photo journals are a great and simple gift idea for friends, family and the special people in your life.
To start, get a black journal, two high-quality photo prints that are vertical and sized to your journal, Mod Podge (an adhesive glue), your choice of rectangular fabric and scissors. Cover the front of the journal with a thick layer of Mod Podge and carefully place your cover photo. Remember to push out any air bubbles that might have formed underneath the photo. Repeat the same step, and apply the second photo to the back cover. Once everything is dry, cover the spine of the book with the rectangular piece of fabric so that it overlaps onto the front and back cover photos to mask any edges.
