Journal 3 has two bookmarks, one that looks like a tassel, and the other which ends with a small magnifying glass.
I found some red drapery tassel at Fabricville and got 0.3m. Which is more then I needed, but I wasn't sure dirtying up the tassel would work the first time so I got extra. Just in case.
I cut off a bit and curled it around to make a tassel, then I sewed it to a ribbon. After I sewed it, I took charcoal and rubbed it all over the tassel to darken it up. I then added the mud mixture I made to dirty it up even more.
The ribbon the tassel hangs from in the show is gray, but I didn't want to just buy gray ribbon. So I found some white ribbon and grayed it up again with charcoal and added mud. I also placed it between two pieces of sand paper and roughed it up.
I did the same for the yellow ribbon that the magnifying glass hangs from. Both ribbons are glued into the spine of the book.
And here is the finished exterior! I have no fake metal tree to find it in, but I did have a nice mossy stump to lay it on for photos.
