Corrugated Cardboard Cutie Junk Journal

My first post! Woohoo! I chose to feature this little 5″ x 7″ gem because it was quick and easy to put together using fabric scraps, cardboard, vintage jewelry/buttons and coffee dyed papers. A total of 24 various pages of scrapbook leftovers I had in my “stash” including lots of blank pages for journaling that are finished off with a little “glitter and glam” bling. The journal is secured with two 1 inch ring binder loops.

I started by sewing my fabric pieces randomly by hand along the left side of my 2 cardboard scraps on both the front and back covers. I like to overlap and scrunch the various pieces in no particular way. I attached my buttons and jewelry on top with heavy duty thread to the front cover. The closure is a gold vintage clasp that was in my broken jewelry box. Perfect!

I am so excited to share this post with you! I am just getting the hang of posting, and hoping to add more soon. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments on how I can improve and grow this dream of mine!

Glitter on friends,

I am a self proclaimed junk journal fanatic and creative crafter. If it is vintage, I am in! I recently retired from the corporate world and now have more time to devote to my love of creating one of a kind treasures. Besides junk journals my hobbies include thrifting, flea market outings, fashion, cooking, hanging with my girlfriends and daughter and golf with my husband. I currently live in the mountains of beautiful Colorado.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

      Thank you for the kind words. I really appreciate it. My suggestion would be go with your gut. If you are passionate about something, it will show through on your blog. For me, creating a blog is a lot of trial and error. I have had to learn as I go (and am still learning!). There are tons of YouTube videos on how to start a blog.
