PAPER WHIMSY JOURNAL
I joined in a swap recently at Paper Whimsy which required making a small journal, 5"x7", and decorating the front with at least two images from Paper Whimsy, and one of their bits from their shop. Well, that was the easy part because every single thing they sell is beautiful. I had never put together any type of book at all, so it was a challenge, but a good one, and the guidelines referenced instructions in the most recent "Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine.
Their binding technique was very simple and worked well, and I used gaffer tape on the seam from Paper Whimsy, which I can now say is a fantastic product!! The covers I cut from some beautiful files I had won on a giveaway a while ago. I added the P.W. girl, and created her skirt from an actual vintage dress I have had for years. Added some bling, fabric, and a nice little glass bobble of LOVE! Now I might have to make myself one!! Thank you for looking!
