Since my party is for the young women in our church and I'm trying to get them to go Up with their Personal Progress, an Adventure book as a journal and take home favor is a great choice to give the girls.
I'll be honest, I'm considering getting some cute duct tape and reinforcing the seem by placing it over the black strip on the front and back. But I need to find something that won't clash and will look super cute on the book. I haven't done that yet.
When the front is dry, do the same to the back. I did find the edges of the composition book curled up a little after using the modge podge. I solved that by placing a few heavy books on the Adventure book for a few days, but if you don't like that, I definitely would recommend using a xyron to turn the Adventure book printables into stickers and then putting them over the composition book. (Yes, I use my Xyron for almost everything! LOVE IT!!)
Then I started filling the pages with the things that I've done lately. This weekend Mini Me and I went to a local popcorn store that I just discovered in the small town next to ours. I wrote about the adventure on my other blog Finding the Joy Around Us, but chronicled it in my Adventure Book smash book. I love how it turned out with the fun foam popcorn, the colorful pictures, and the flyer that I got from the store.
I'm pretty excited about My Adventure Books and hope the girls will be too. I think we can spend some time filling them out for our family history classes or our personal progress nights. Plus, they will have a fun smash book to look back on when they are old and grown like me.
