This journal is one of the rare things I've made that I can say is 100% recycled. I try to use recycled materials as much as possible, but often there's something that just can't be--like thread!
I made this Colourful Scrappy Recycled Journal on a whim, trying to think of how to reuse a set of black covers from a coil bound book. I often receive supplies like this from friends, with a "can you use something like this?" And I usually can!
So instead of trying to figure out a binding with the existing holes, I flipped them around so they would be on the foredge. I filled the book with a scrappy collection of miscellaneous papers and bound it together with waxed linen thread trimmings from other bindings. Then to decorate the edge, I tied on a colourful selection of yarn scraps. My kids thought I should have added eyes on the cover as well!
This one was only listed 10 days ago, and now it will be on it's way to Japan! Sayonara!
