teeny tiny journals

Hello,
I'm on my last journal, so I've been busy making new ones naturally :). And just for the fun of it, I made some teeny weeny ones too, using some paper scraps. I thought they would make you smile today :).


The littlest ones fit nicely into your palm. And the yellow journal is about 4 X 6" in size. I didn't sew the journals much except for the buttons. I used jewelry thread to tie the pages together. 



Colorful corrugated papers and 'leather' papers used for the cover. I wonder if the bookstore guy was correct to call them 'leather' paper :). They certainly feel like leather with paper backing up on the other side.

I used leftover watercolor papers, pattern papers scraps and salvaged old black diary to make the pages.

Are you ready to up-cycle old jeans and scrap papers into tiny journals yet?. I bet, you could go crazy and make them really really small as key-chain or pendant journals!. 
HAPPINESS.
