Journal with Trunk Lock SVG

After making my hinges the last posting I decided something was missing. Well my husband come into my Arthaven and seen my card (last post) and said it looked like a trunk. Well that is when I realized that all trunks have locks on them so I made an old fashion trunk lock.

This is a journal I made to look like a trunk. I used a composition book. I did the binding with copper and black embossing powder just as I did the hinges and lock. (See post below for instructions). I didn't add any more embellishments because I felt that the floral paper along with the copper toned accessories was all that it needed. On the inside of the cover though I will decorate it and put a tag on it that says " This Journal Belongs To....).

Well I hope you enjoyed my new creation! Have a Blessed Day!!
