Handmade Journals

Today I'm sharing a new project I have been working on! Since getting a Cricut Maker I have been thinking of projects to make. After coming across a box of blank cards I had this idea to cut the cards and make them into journal covers! This took a bit of testing but I'm very pleased with how they turned out. I ended up gluing a piece of paper behind to keep it from snagging onto things and it gave me the opportunity to glue some bits back. Trying to think in the realm of what will get cut off and what will be attached was a real brain teaser. The paper I used for these little book is scrap paper from my stash. I used a pamphlet stitch to keep them altogether. I tried to use my long arm stapler because book binding hasn't ever been my thing, but they were just too chunky. Cutting and assembling these little books has been very relaxing while still recovering from getting my wisdom teeth removed!

My plan is to start an art journal challenge and sell/ give away a few of these books with little collage packets. I plan on explaining and sharing more of this project idea on my Instagram, so be sure to follow along if this sounds like something you'd be interested in.
