I made this journal out of kraft card and I cut and glued & sewed two layers together to give the covers more strength (and sewed the centre join). I painted it black (to keep it clean - its a travel journal, & will be in my handbag so may get grubby), stenciled on the letters (a That's Crafty stencil) and sewed on ties - I really like using ribbons to wrap around and keep the journal closed.
There weren't any directions about how big/thick the books should be that fit inside so I made mine 10x21cm (20x21cm folding at 10cm) which made them nice and easy to cut out. I cut 3 books of 6 pages each - different types of paper giving it a junk journal feel.
Because I cut the pages from larger sheets of paper I ended up with lots of smaller pieces which I used to make little journals...
Can't have too many books ready to be painted & doodled into, can you?
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is creating with their dies.
