I have just finished my first project for 2018. A junk journal using First Editions Wanderlust paper pad. I have lots of off cuts from other projects and need to get them used up, so there will be many more to come.
The base of the book was a cereal box covered with black card. Size is approx. 6.5"x 6.5" with a spine of 3".
To keep the book close I used tiny clips with a chain and charms to link them together and added bows from crinkled seam binding.
The back I left plain.
I covered the spine with a couple of layers of wide lace to cover where I stitched in the signatures. Dcorated with one of my handmade embellishments.
Through out the book I have added decorated with handmade paperclip embellishments.
I also die cut lots of individual journal cards to add extra options for extra journaling or photo mats.
This became quite a chunky journal with seven signatures.
With some of the scraps I made pockets using cut down mini envelopes.
