- On the computer, type the description of your thoughts or emotions. Print out on regular paper. Select a font that looks like a dictionary entry or expresses the words you want.
- Using removable tape to adhere the mulberry paper over the typed page and onto the light box. The light box allows you to see the typed text through the mulberry paper. Trace over the text with the pen, transferring the journaling onto the mulberry paper. Note: If you don't have a light box, use a sunny window to trace lettering.
- Tear coordinating cardstock to create your journaling block. Trim the mulberry paper to fit your block. To give a feathered edge to the mulberry, lightly wet the edges with water and tear along the wet edge.
