Stash Buster Junk Journal

I made this and totally used up a ton of paper scraps that I had in a box by my craft table.  The box went from overflowing to manageable.  I need to make another.  I just picked papers and started sewing and gluing.
 The cover is made from an old 7 Gypsies folder that I had and never knew what to do with.  I painted it and then covered it with panels of scraps.  The binding is a pamphlet stitch using just some bakers twine.
 The inside cover and first page.  Lots of scraps, some doilies made it in here too.
 Papers left over from my junk journals that I have been making.

 This left side is a left over file folder from my last "Mini Notebooks" entry.

 I put library cards in it too...and some stickers.

This is the back cover.

Stay Crafty My Friends.
