  2. Mount leaving about 1/3rd of the page bottom open.
  3. Fill bottom third of page with strips of patterned paper. [Optional: Add string or stitching at strip edges for texture and interest.]
  4. Add narrow strip of paper, with or without scallop or punched edge, at page top.
  5. Mount two rectangular journalers with handwritten journaling so that they bleed off page sides.
