Recently I joined our prayer group at church. I also have been meaning to make a new prayer journal for a few months so this was the perfect opportunity. Let's look at what I did.
First, I purchased a leather journal made by Buteo Bunker on Etsy. I added the sari ribbon for a bit of color and fun. The size of my journal is 5.5" x 3.5" with ample overhang. I then used four Moleskine Cahiers Squared Journals inside dividing them up into my prayer sections marked by tabs.
To create the tabs, I printed some of Roben-Marie's digital art (available by clicking here) onto Neenah Premium Cardstock. I then punched the tabs with my WRMK tab punch which is linked in my product list at the end of this post. Next, I printed the labels and covered each tab in Document Repair Tape. It has a matte finish, and it will keep the tabs nice over time. I did sew on each tab before adhering to my pages. The stitching is not necessary but I tend to sew on everything I create. I love the texture and strings.
The tabs I created are:
I like having my journal set up like this instead of specific days for specific prayer. This personally works better for me. The art you see on some of the pages is just leftover paint. Whenever I have paint left on a stencil or anything like that, I am putting it on these pages to give them a bit of texture for fun.
I hope this has been helpful especially for those of you that struggle putting together a prayer journal. Feel free to ask questions in the comment section below. I will answer you there. Have a blessed weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
