Dress up a journal or notebook by making your own notebook and journal covers with resin! Each mold casts with holes in place making connected them with wire, ribbon, or other ties easy peasy!
Make journal and notebook covers in three sizes:
- The small mold makes castings 9 1/2 cm by 13 cm.
- The medium mold makes castings 10 1/2 cm by 17 1/2 cm.
- The large mold makes castings 21 cm by 15 1/2 cm.
Each mold is approximately 1/8 inch deep.
How do you use these journal cover molds to make a resin notebook cover?
Step 1: Measure and mix casting resin
Step 2: Add fun things like resin colors and found items to make it special.
Step 3: Demold once the resin is dry and finish with wire and papers.
The small mold holds 40 cc of resin. The medium mold holds 60 cc of resin. The large mold holds 105 cc of resin.
For each mold, there are six 'cast in place' holes that are 4 mm in diameter. For the small mold, the holes are 1.3 cm apart with no center gap. The gap between the first three holes and the second three holes is 4.3 cm in the medium-sized mold and 6.3 cm in the large-sized mold.
For the best results and to prolong mold life, we recommend using our Ultra 4 Parfilm Polyester paintable mold release.

Easy to remove piece from mold, the small mold makes a great purse size book
Every size is easy to work with; my favorite for gifting is the small. Molds release cleanly and well, since I got the Ultra 4 ParFilm Mold Release I ALWAYS use it.
A fun and versatile mold. The small size is great for making sketchbooks and journals. The attached picture is a cover I made as a test. (If, like me, you tend go a little overboard and try to add too many things, you can overfill the mold a little and just re-drill the holes and trim the edges and it still looks pretty good!)
Love these molds! I purchased all three sizes and they are very easy to use. The best part of the purchase was receiving a personal email from Katherine letting me know that she was there to help. 💜
Good quality mold, clear lines clean pull. Perfect sized for A5/6/7 paper with space at the edge of coverage and ease of opening
