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!

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.
