Postcard Journal

A few weeks ago I posted a vintage postcard album I made with a binding called single sheet sewing using an exposed coptic stitch.  I decided to make another one using modern postcards that are blank on one side so it could function as a notebook or journal.

The front and back covers have two silver eyelets and all the postcards are sewn together with European linen thread.

The postcards are from a lovely Etsy store called The Paris Print Shop.  Their photography is beautiful and I really like how their collections are themed by color.

Above is binding on the inside front cover.

This would be a fun travel journal project.  Each day of your vacation, purchase a postcard and write what you did that day on the back.  Then bind all the postcards together to form a cute little book that is a record of your trip.

Here’s the finished journal:

Thanks for visiting.  Don’t forget to visit my Pinterest Boards for more vintage paper inspiration!
