Quick and Easy Emoji Journals



I have to say that I am just IN LOVE with the new Joy Embroidered Emojis and Bubble Letters - they make me swoon! My 13-year-old niece fell in love with them too, so on a recent visit, we crafted up these quick and easy emoji journals - one for her and one for her best friend!

STEP ONE:
Glue scrapbook paper to the cover of a composition book with a strong adhesive. Open the cover and trim away any excess paper - this saves the measuring step!


STEP TWO:
Pick out your Joy letters to spell the text abbreviations you want to use. We used the black and white letters on the turquoise journal and the pink and turquoise letters on the black-striped journal for the most contrast. Line up the letters so they are straight and iron them on your journal cover according to the directions on the package. I use a small craft iron because it doesn't have any steam holes.

STEP THREE:
Pick out your Joy emojis -  this is the really FUN part! There are six different packs of emojis to select from and each pack includes four different designs. The emojis can be applied in two different ways - either peel and stick (reinforce with glue as desired) or iron-on for extra durability.

Here is a close up of the emojis - I give them ALL THE HEART EYES!
😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍


I hope you will use our quick and easy Emoji journals as a jumping off point to start "creating with Joy!" Joy Embroidered letters and symbols are an excellent way to personalize anything and everything - the possibilities are endless!
