Mini-Journal

Just a quick post today to share a photo of the 4" x 5" mini-journal I made recently. I pulled a pile of blue papers from my scrap bin, cut them to 4x5, inked the edges, then used my Bind-It-All to put them together.


I added some stamping, a die cut shape, flowers and a brad to the front. Then I flipped through the book and added those same stamped images on some of the pages. This was a quick easy project that made a nice gift and used up a pile of scraps.

What have you created with your paper scraps lately?

What a great idea you have there Melissa! Of course blue is my favorite color and this would be such fun to do some journaling in too. I've been doing more stamping lately myself and I'm loving it.
I'm actually doing a Rolodex project and embellishing each card with my paper scraps and then adding a Bible verse to each one, hoping to have a verse for every day of the this year and then will have it to read every year.
