Recycled Greeting Cards Journals Spines

    Newer Older

    Journals made from recycling greetings cards and leftover gift wrap. I have done video tutorials on how to create these larger journals, another on how to make the beads on the spine and 5 different kinds of mini books (again from leftover cards) to go inside the larger journals (we create pockets in the first tutorial). Blogged here: or all tutorials can be found on my youtube channel:

      I love these! But I didn't keep the cards when spring cleaning! :(

      But it did inspire me to use old brown packing paper I did save and am making some books like you showed in the Visio I saw several days ago. Fun but I forgot to add needs while sewing and the tries to use the dangling threads but I made the too short to put beads on. .... I'll figue something out. Thanks for the inspiration!

      Awesome!! I'm sure it looks good without, you can put beads on the next one lol bookmaking gets addictive, especially if you enjoy making something out of recycling =) xx
