NYC Travel Journals


 I had great fun today making these little travel journals. We are going to New York City next week and meeting up with my sister and her husband. We'll be staying at my parent's time share in downtown Manhattan. I thought it would be cool if we each had a little travel journal for our trip.

 So I made them out of the hand made paper I made last month and added painted paper inside. The pages are 8 1/2 x 11 paper cut in half and then folded. I then found a few photos online of things in NYC.
 My sister got us tickets to be on the TV show The Chew. We'll be in the audience and might get on TV. I've never even watched the show but...
 My husband got us tickets to go to the Mets game. One of his friends knows a player. So a baseball game is in my future. Hopefully, I'll survive :)
 We're staying at the Manhattan Club which is right across from Carnegie Hall.
I made a little pocket for the back cover to keep tickets etc. that I will be adding to the book. I'll show you the finished results when I get back. I'll also post a mini tutorial on how I made the books on the Felting and Fiber Studio blog next week. See you soon!

great little books. I wouldn't have thought to put things in them to start. What a great idea. I hope they all use them and add things to all the pages.
