Journaling, Outside the Box


Hi Guys! Last couple of days I have been making this home decor art journal. (Yes, it's a journal. It encapsulates what my feelings were at that moment, so by my reckoning it's a journal). Ever since I discovered bookbinding I have looked at everything from wool to wood, from metal to plastic to see how I can turn it into a journal. Now I'm looking at ways to journal outside of the box, or book in this case.

I am now editing a video tutorial on this, which I'll post on here once done, so if you want to make it pop back to have a peek. 

It's not difficult to make, I doubt you even need a tutorial but I'm making one for youtube so might as well post it.


It is made from recycled materials so you'll need:
3 same shape boxes
waste paper
some threading material - I used a belt but anything will work (long necklace/thread/string etc)
glue, paint, pens, embellies etc


Sorry about the bad pics it was late when I took them. Linking up with Paint Party FridaySneak Peak and for the first time Show & Tell Friday as I've always looked and drooled over the beautiful things shown over at My Romantic Home, toodles Jennibellie x

PS Only couple more days left to enter my giveaway & if you haven't already go do it as I'm secretly adding more to the goodies - something that will soon be in my Etsy shoppe but shhhhh only to be known to the winner :)
