Singapore Travel Junk journal- Coptic style binding


My sister her daughter and my niece have decided to go for a short trip to Singapore this summer. And I have obviously decided to make a travel journal / organizer / mini album. I say all these things because it shall act as all of these things. Let me explain, It shall act as an Organizer because it will hold all my vouchers and tickets and passes thus eliminating the need for me to carry a travel wallet and reach in my bag again and again. It is a journal because I will collect memorabilia and ticket stubs passes, etc and add to it and write on it everyday
my experiences and the things we ate, or did or the places we went to. Lastly it is a mini album because it will hold photos and journalling so technically it a theme based album I will use to record my trip. as and when its happening with the exception of photos which I shall probably add later or use my Polaroid camera for some part...

So, here goes...
