Cereal Box Journals

I'm in a cereal box journal swap
on
Christian Paper Artists Yahoo Group....

This is what I made yesterday to send off...

I really like it and want to make more, more, more....

what a great way to use up stuff.

And some of my favorite papers that I don't want to use -

I need to make one of these for ME!

Then I can just sit and hold my favorites in a book form

and one day maybe I'll actually write in it!!!

The page below with the woman and the quote
is torn from an Anthropologie catalog.
I added the little rubber stamp on the bottom corner.....
who actually inspired us to make these.
...go make one and show me!

Great minds think alike! :D See my post today for a page made out of a biscotti box. LOL. Too funny!

I think a whole journal would be really cool, I'll have to try it.

WOW, wonderful use of something really too good to throw away...I always knew it, why didn't I think of this! :) I am itching to make something, but I think I've been in my computer chair too long....what a pain

Debbie said...

Wow, is anything in the house safe anymore? ;-)

thanks for the inspiration.... I have been collecting a ton of boxes but have not been able to put it together - It helps to see what others are making.....I was planning on painting over my journal cover ... (that's ok right?) I like debbie's comment - xo me :)

Anna said...

girl - I'm gonna get it right...... how'd i do this time?

Margaret said...

Totally cool idea! you really are the best! although I can hear the BIA from here muttering about being superseded by a couple of metal rings, it WILL rust if you don't use it, no really it will...

Nathalie Thompson said...

YES! Go make one for yourself before the inspiration passes!!!!

I love these journals! What a great way to reuse!

Jeanie said...

I saw some of these at Nathalie's too -- you must be in the same group! I think they're wonderful! What a clever idea!
