These little mini scrap journals are the perfect way to use up your paper scraps. The album featured is 3 x 5 in size (you could make your album larger) and has a great mixture of patterns, ephemera and beautiful Paper Whimsy faces. They make perfect little “end of the year” school gifts for teachers, assistants and graduations. They can be personalized too!
(1) Cut various pieces of pattern paper and old ledger papers 3 x 5 size.
(2) Punch borders with scallop punches, or cut with decorative scissors to add visual interest to the journal.
(3) Add images (I used all sorts of beautiful faces), ephemera, word art, butterflies and bling.
(4) Bind with spiral binding, eyelets, book clips/rings, or pretty ribbon.
