Instructions: Cut a shamrock out of green foam paper or cardboard. Attach a bamboo skewer cut to the height of your journal. Attach the shamrock to the top to look like a wand.
Cut paper and cover stock to your desired size.
Punch two holes in the side for binding. Holes should be positioned to the size of your wand handle.
Insert the folded end of a rubber band up through the top hole and stick the wand handle through it to keep it in place.
On the back of the journal, stretch the other end of the rubber band up through the bottom hole.
