{oh, what do you do in the summertime} featuring...ginger snap crafts

Brown Paper Packages

Hi!  I’m Ginger from Ginger Snap Crafts
So nice to meet you!
It really is a dream come true to be here at Brown Paper Packages.
{I think this was one of the first craft blogs I followed!}
Thank you so much for having me, Kierste!  I adore you & your blog.

I love summer time!  My kiddos have one more week of school left.  Yay!
We have tons of fun things planned!  Can’t wait to get started!
One thing we do every summer is that each kiddo has a summer journal. 

summer journals

Here’s how we made our journals this year!

summer journal 1

You’ll need:composition books
washi tape
a rotary cutter

summer journal 2 summer journal 3 summer journal 4

First you’ll need to remove the top layer from your composition book.
(You don’t want the bright colors showing up underneath your washi tape!)
Then you’ll put your washi tape on your notebook in whatever pattern & colors you like.

Then trim off the excess washi tape from around your edges.  Don’t those notebooks look so fun?

summer journal 9 summer journal 11 summmer journal 10

These two journals are for my girls, so I added some ribbon
& a tag to make them a little more girlie & cute!

Now they are all ready to fill with some fun summer memories!
Kierste, thank you again for having me over!  I had a wonderful time!

I’d love to have you drop by Ginger Snap Crafts anytime!
It’s a fun place where I share my cute & easy craft projects.
Like my {yummy} apron, DIY photo pendants & {adorable} burp cloths.


Hope to see YOU soon! 


Thank you so much for being here, Ginger!  I think it's such a great idea for kids to have their own summer journals, and these are darling!!
