New Journal and 30/30 project

I watched a video on youtube about making a journal out of a pad of watercolor paper. It looked fun to do so I did it.

First, I had to cut the edges of paper in a decorative design..

First, I had to cut the edges of paper in a decorative design..

Then the back of the pad is cut in half.

And taped together - I used packing tape but you could use bookbinding tape too.

I added scrapbook papers to the front

and glued them
added interior pages,

And then covered my tape with foil tape.

I sewed 2 signatures in,

and used foil tape to put on the outside. It covered up the stitching and I put plastic flowers underneath and then burnished them to show up.

I love this tape! You could use all kinds of objects underneath for a design.

This is a top view.

Now to fill all the pages!!

On one of my yahoo groups, we are doing a 30 projects in 30 days. This is Day 1. Shh, don't tell that I am days behind and now need to get to work.:)
