Shamrock Celtic Polymer Clay JournalsI am a great fan of the Celtic culture. I've been to Ireland several times, have written a book on Irish romantic customs, and love Irish music. I enjoy having journals with Irish themes to them.
This Shamrock journal was created with grey granite polymer clay. I ran it through the pasta machine until it was almost the right thinnness. I created two strings of green clay and created two spirals, and pressed them into the grey cover. I then ran it through the pasta machine again. Next I took a green shamrock charm, from a charm set, and pressed it into the center. I carved out the holes on the left before baking.
For the insides, I began with sheets of 3.4" x 3.4" memo paper, colored kelly green. I have a Swingline hole punch that is great for creating two holes evenly without any fuss. Then comes the connection. I had to go to a Target for these. They are an 8 pack of binder rings, which come with one small blue and one small green. So you have to get 2 packs to end up with 2 small green rings.
I hand curled a stretch of wire into a spiral for the bottom right corner, it's a signature I like to put on my journals.
