Well, this was perfect for me since I had seen these lovely papers from Vectoria Designs featuring Dragonflies and I had been wanting to make this journal from Little Scraps of Heaven! I was inspired to make a video since I couldn't find directions online for the journal; but I'll warn you ahead of time, I made several modifications!
