Grafix Opaque White Craft Plastic Mini Art Journal

Project Description: Make your own mini version of an art journal using Grafix Opaque White Craft Plastic Film and Artist Series Shrink Film.

Designed by: Tania Ahmed

Difficulty: Easy


Steps to Make This:

  1. Start by trimming Grafix Opaque White Craft Plastic Film into four 4” x 6” pieces.
  2. Then, drip different colors of alcohol ink onto the Opaque White Craft Plastic panels and let dry completely. (Use heat tool if necessary).
  3. Repeat step 2 to cover the other sides of the Opaque White Craft Plastic panels.
  4. Place stencils over the alcohol inked Opaque White Craft Plastic and “lift” some of the ink through the stencil by dabbing a sponge with a small amount of alcohol solution on it. This will leave a “ghost print” of the stencil.
  5. Once Opaque White Craft Plastic is completely dried, score at halfway point (3”) on the sheet and firmly fold in half using a bone folder.
  6. Mark and poke three evenly spaced holes into the spine of the journal with an awl or a bookbinding needle.
  7. Use the bookbinding thread and needle to start sewing through the central hole of the spine.
  8. Continue threading through the rest of the holes. Securely tie the loose ends of the string with a double knot and trim the excess.
  9. For the cover, cut out and color a butterfly design from the Grafix Artist Series Shrink Film with permanent markers.
  10. Use a heat tool to shrink film.
  11. Use a paper punch to create a circle with book text.
  12. To finish, glue paper doily book text circle and Artist Series Shrink Film butterfly to the front of the journal.
