How We Made Our Bible Journals

Dec 18, 2019 | Bible Journaling, Homeschooling

Part of our homeschool Bible Basket time includes writing and drawing in our Bible journals. My daughter and I each have our own Bible journal, and we decorated them with some supplies in my craft stash. In this post I am sharing how we decorated our journals and how we use them.

My daughter and I dug through my stash of Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP) and ribbons and we each picked out a design and color we liked. The papers and ribbons we chose are retired, but this decorating process will work with any current DSP and ribbon. The list below has all the items we used in this project.

Supplies

Instructions

To begin, pick out two sheets of DSP (same or coordinating patterns). Measure how wide the front and back of your notebook is and cut your DSP a little wider than that (we cut ours to 7″ wide for our notebooks). Glue the DSP to the cover, lining up the paper with the left edge of the notebook. Trim away excess paper. Do the same to the back of the notebook.

For the name label, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to your desired size and write/decorate as desired. Glue this piece to the cover of your notebook. Wrap ribbon/trim around and tie in a knot or bow. We wrapped the ribbon once around and the twine three times around. If needed, add a few glue dots under the ribbon/trim to keep in place.

During our Bible Basket time we read a chapter of the Bible and use our Bible journals to document what we read. Anna writes a verse or two from the chapter and then draws a picture to go with it. For my journal, I use the same verse but usually write out the whole paragraph or section it is in.

Decorating our Bible journals was a fun project for us to do together. Anna already wants to decorate more. If you make your own journal and share it on social media, use the hashtag #makewithDSP or tag me (@mackenziemakes) so I can see your creations!

Happy making!
