Lightbulb Leaf Journal Idea

Hi all! I'm sure many of us are distraught about having to lose our pixies in the month to come, but I would personally love to have something to treasure my own fairy by. Not just the screenshots and the PDF files, but more like a unique album, and I thought that a Leaf Journal would be just the thing for it.

What I was picturing in my head was a printable Leaf Journal that would be the same size as the one in the game, with leaf bookmarks along the sides and even a leaf clasp to hold everything together. The pages could be all organized in a Word file that people would be able to download, then edit the text to their liking, add their own pictures and then print out and stitch all the pages together.

I was planning on experimenting with this idea some time next month, but just wanted to let it out in the open - maybe we could all brainstorm some ideas. I have been collecting screenshots of blank pages (you know, when things take a while to load and you can see the background) but there could be a chance that I may miss something, so the first task for you all would be to fly around the game and collect any screenshots that you think might be a great addition to a printable Leaf Journal.

Here are some ideas that have been brewing in my head these last few days:
  • First page is the To-Do List. I really like the little note on the left that has our fairy's name on it. Maybe the page on the right could list our fairy's favorite activities.
  • Printed pages of Badges we have managed to earn would be so cool!
  • The Leaf language could also be useful. Maybe there could be a separately printed bookmark with a favorite phrase written on it?
  • For the wardrobe, I was thinking that there could be a page where our fairy has different parts of the body cut out and then stuck together so that the pose can be changed (so she could bend her elbows and knees, move her head from side to side). A "pocket" can be stuck on another page where you can store your favorite outfit pieces and your fairy would be able to change outfits.
  • Some sort of profile page for our Animal Friends would be wonderful to include.
  • A whole place for favorite screenshots could be added to the back. Instead of pasting the images to the pages on Word, you could print them out separately, cut them out and then stick them on like you would in a collage book, perhaps even decorate the edges with frames.
  • If you'd like to write a story about your fairy's adventures, some blank pages could be added (with lines?) and you could write it there with a calligraphy pen. Or using the available fonts on the computer could work as well.

I was very excited when the idea first appeared in my head, and am wishing that it could become a reality. It would such a pleasure to be able to pick up a fairy journal off the shelf once in a while and recall the most fondest memories of the game. I hope you all would be able to help me out with the whole process of putting it together.

Wonderful idea Onion!! Kind of like a paper doll set!! I used to love paper dolls...very "old school" & there were actual sets that came with "homes" play areas etc. so this is a very cool idea if you have the time & patience to do it!! I actually had a Patty Duke set from her tv series & a McCalls set from a big magazine in the USA (huge in the 60s) & played with them for hours upon end!! You could have the entire Hollow at your fingertips if you wanted!!

Bard's Drab Brads

Would you make the doll body out of stiff paper and then put brads* to connect the limb joints?

*I think they are called brads. I mean metal fasteners with two tiny brass leaves that you can thread through a hole and then bend apart.

Stormy tells me she wants this most of all!

P.S. And as I recall, her long purple dress had some articulation as well, so that it would fit in various poses.

That seems like a wonderful idea!
Though I would love to have one, with the materials I have at my house it would take alot of work.

Though I can't make one, how cool would it be to have your own leaf journal with all of the things from the game that you loved most?

This sounds like a flitterific idea! It would be nice to pull out my fairies' leaf journal once in a while. I suppose it would be like a mini fairy scrapbook, with additions . I'm willing to help with anything I can do!

This such a cute idea! as I agree with Bug. Paper dolls were one of my all time favorites as a child and making scrapbooks. I'm such a fanatic with saving such precious things that meant the world to me.

I still have every report card from when I was a child and some of the work I did when I was in school ( little drawings, hand written stories, etc. ) It really is a treasure to be able to look back on them and especially for my daughter!

I'm not sure what I can do to help but I'll try

Thank you all for the support! The best way you could help is to throw out any ideas that you may think of. I'd really like it to be more of a collaborative project, with a completed Word or PDF file as the result and easy-to-follow tutorials for the cutting and pasting part. I don't have too many craft materials at home myself, but visiting a crafts store should be simple enough to do.

Thank you for the screenshots as well! It would be best to save them in PNG format rather than JPG, and it would be nice to have the whole leaf page seen, right down to the uneven edges.

I know there are many of you here who are able to work well with graphics, so I hope that you will be able to help out as well. I have a feeling there is a LOT of cropping and editing to be done..

That is exactly what I was thinking of! Now I'm not very experienced with arts & crafts so it could take me a while to figure out what material would be required.

The fairy paper doll sounds like the most popular idea, I'd be happy to develop that further. It might be best to actually have the fairy at a larger scale than the size that is in the Leaf Journal. Thicker paper could be used, and the different clothing items could be cut out separately. I was thinking of something like this, where the paper tabs on the sides would secure the piece.

This is just from memory of what I've seen when I was a kid. It would be impossible to cut out all the accessories, so that is why the whole hand is cut out. Also, maybe someone could design a simple top and skirt that would fit the fairy's body so that other outfits could be fitted over it. There's also the problem that only PDF files would have the required quality for such a project.. *sigh* So many questions to consider!
