Tutorial for a handmade Wine journal

I have made this wine journal for my dear sister Cathie for her birthday.  She and her husband love to wine taste and I thought that this handmade diary would be a perfect gift.

I covered a 5×7 paper notebook with maroon designer paper.  Before covering I had used clear heavy gel through a stencil to embellish the front cover and rubbed gold acrylic paint to highlight the design.  I also purchase some wine dimensional stickers from Michaels and glued them on to the cover.  Finally, I used some silver holographic duct tape that I got at the Dollar tree to cover the spine of the book.
