Ripped and Stitched Journal...

A quick share of my new journal!  I made this in Roben-Marie Smith's "Ripped and Stitched" online workshop. 

Working on the cover.  It's made of hand painted muslin...

Here's how it looks all finished...


The inside is made of white 9" x 12" mailing envelopes.  The shipping tags are magnetic and hold the envelope openings closed, so you could keep little treasures in there if you wanted to...

I had a ton of fun making this journal.  There were lots of steps involved, but each one was easy and relaxing.  I highly recommend Ripped and Stitched!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have an awesome Thursday!

How are the envelopes attached? Is it like a single page binding? If so I am VERY interested. I can not find any tuts on single page binding anywhere.

Oh, never mind, I realize you folded the envelopes. Your book looks like it is sized at 9 x 12!
