A Little Craftiness– Journals and Greeting Card Boxes

While on my sewing hiatus, my attention turned to paper crafting. A friend let my borrow her spiral punch to make journal covers. I simply punched the long edge of the cardstock, decorated the front, and glued the cover to the front of the journal. The results are cute, personalized journals, perfect for recording thoughts and creativity.

Have a look-see.

One day I’m going to learn how to take clearer pictures.

The following are greeting card holders that can hold up to six cards, or maybe four heavily embellished cards. I found and used this template from Mirkwood Designs. This is great way to package cards for gifts or sale. I used DCWV (Die Cuts With a View) cardstock. The sheets with the “lacquered” look and texture were stiffer than regular cardstock and held the shape of the holder beautifully. I scored the template with a stylus rather than a scoring blade to avoid inadvertently cutting the paper. The finished dimensions of the holders are 6×4.5 inches.
