Mini Hibiscus Journal

I’m obviously feeling a tropical vibe these days because today’s Mini DIY Hibiscus Journals were totally inspired by one of my favorite tropical flowers. I live in a pretty little neighborhood that reminds me of the movie set of Pleasantville – I kid you not. Some of these pretty little homes have gorgeous hibiscus plants, and I swear I’ve seen some blooms the size of my head. Gorgeous. So here I am surrounded by these stunning flowers, and that led to today’s DIY stationery post. Want to make your own? Read on!
