DIY: Decorate a travel photo journal
Our photo journals are the perfect partner to keep all your travel memories together – smaller than an average photo book, they are ideal for those Instagram shots that may have not quite made it into your holiday photo books.
In this blog post, we’re going to show you how to create a photo journal that’s completely unique to your trip, by customising the front cover in this super easy DIY post.
What you’ll need…
One of the PhotoBox team has recently come back from Turkey and decided to create a photo journal from their trip. For the map, we simply used Google Maps and searched for Turkey, specifically Istanbul, took a screenshot and then printed this out to cover the photo journal.
Place the first half of the map under the front cover of the photo journal (as shown), and cut small triangles in each corner – this will help you bend the edges around the cover.
Once you’ve done this, fix each edge with the washi tape to ensure it remains in place. Repeat on the back of the photo journal if you like.
You’ll then need to use some more washi tape down the spine of the photo journal – we chose pink & white tape, to match the colours on the map.
If you want to decorate it even further, you could use stickers – like these travel ones that we found, which will also look great inside of your photo journal!
