Here are some pics of a journal I made using 90% recycled materials and the cover was made from this chocolate box (geuss who had a birthday in October?) :
The pages are made from "throw-away" cardboard ie: egg box labels, backing from sticker packs etc.
I covered the outside of the Journal with white paper which I will later paint and decorate. The inside covers were decorated with some patterned paper and lace/braid.
Jennibellie's Blog and watch her videos on how to make recycled books/journals. She's awesome! I also made some recycled buttons from cardboard packing boxes. YES- you can watch the video on Jenniebellie's Blog or Youtube.
I decided to make my buttons in neural colours so that I can use them for a lot of different projects.
But they can be made brite and happy too! I spent a very happy Sunday morning making these (Thank u for the inspiration Jenny!!!)
