These journals measure 31/2 inches by 7 inches. They are perfect to write favorite quotes,
or those very special happenings that you want to remember. They would even be good for those profound statements that the kids come up with. I gave our daughters and daughter-in-laws one for Mother's Day. My daughter said that she wrote what she did on Mother's Day that year, and every year thereafter. It will be a little treasure for her daughter in years to come. I covered heavy mat board with various collage and oriental papers, made pages out of rice paper with a vellum tab, and embellished the front. They are all different, and fun to make. You do need one of those fancy punches to make the holes, or you could drill a hole with your Dremel. I used the punch.
