Weight Loss Journal

What better way to start off the New Year than with a New Year's Resolution!! So, I decided to begin my journey back to size 12 and chart my progress along the way!

To make this handy little book, you will need 6 brown coin envelopes, 2 pieces of chipboard (4x6) ink, and any other embellishments you choose.

First, remove the flap from each envelope and ink the front, back and edges of each one. Use a small punch to punch out a semi-circle at the opened end of each envelope (this will make it easier to remove the contents!). Next cut six 3x4.5 pieces of patterned paper and adhere one piece to the front of each envelope. Be sure not to adhere it directly in the middle as it may interfere with the binding. Add a tag on to keep track of your measurements and I used three rimmed circle stickers to record my monthly weigh-ins! Be creative with you embellieshements keeping in mind what information you want to record each month.

Once your pages are finished, adhere patterened paper to the front and back of both of you pieces of chipboard. Don't forget to think of a cute title :) I used a Zutter Bind-It-All to bind, my book, but you can use ribbon, jump rings or any other method you choose!

So here I go on my journey....wish me luck :)

P.S. I plan to put a photo in each envelope every month so that I can see my progress.

Hope you've enjoyed today's project!
