Mine started with a Calcium Chew box, it looked just the right size for my first journal, approximately 4.25 x 5.25 inches (10,8 x 13,3 cm)
The panel on the left that I stitched on and embellished with bling and white gel pen is from the inside of a Yogi Tea box
Since I collect (another word for can’t throw away) paper, cardboard packaging and ephemera, it was not hard to find bits of this and that to punch and insert into my journal. I am not a big gadget girl, but the Crop-a-dile was perfect for this project with lots of hole punching…punches like butta. That is a tool I would not want to be without.
The twist ties are temporary, this is a work in progress. I know I have the perfect rings here somewhere. I saw some nice white ones when I was cleaning up a few weeks ago…happens to me alot when I rearrange things!
here are a few of the papers I used: old blank note card, flash card, ledger paper, computer punch card, cardboard from tea box, vellum papers torn from spiral notebook, light cardboard packaging from craft supplies, calendar pages, book text, puzzle pages, postcards from mail, small gift bag (as a pocket), piece of roadmap, cardstock….things keep popping up that say put me in the junk journal!
I think this will be fun to keep in the car for jotting notes and such in.
