Hello and Happy 4th of July!! I've made a Vintage, Tall Patriotic Journal. I've used lots of Tim Holtz goodies on this. It was so much fun to put together!
First 2 pages.
Next 2 pages.
Journal open all the way.
Back of the pages. The pages are made out of manilla file folders. I stenciled on the back sides. You can still add some journaling. For the binding I used some cream color fabric and my Singer sewing machine. I was doing Zig zag stitch and then on the last panel (far right) I got a surprise. My daughter changed the stitch on the machine and I didn't notice it until it was too late. I just ran with it. It ended up on the front of the book and I really liked it...LOL!
