  1. Cut a piece of patterned paper to 2x3.25” (be sure to measure your own binder clip to confirm that it’s the same size as mine).
  2. Gently fold patterned paper around the binder clip, lightly creasing it.
  3. Remove patterned paper and use a Sakura Pigma Micron to outline the existing pattern.
  4. Use Cray-Pas Oil Pastels to color the patterned paper. Use your finger to smudge the oil pastels.
  5. Apply gel medium to the binder clip with a paintbrush.
  6. Wrap paper around binder clip and smooth with fingers.
  7. Paint another coat of gel medium over the patterned paper. Let it dry.
  8. Print out the names of the people in your photo and the date taken. Adhere the journaling strip to your binder clip using a glue dot.
