A Found Paper Junk Journal

I was playing around with a bunch of wonderful collage papers that I got in grab bags at the local stamp store.  One of the awesome finds was this book cover, torn up, spine removed.
 I decided to fill the book with found papers, and turn the spine into a bookmark.
 I had advertising pages,
 and shorthand pages.  Ledger pages,
 an old text book page, and a page from a yearbook.
 Even a cool old map made it into my book.
 I used 75 pages in all.
And I used one scrap to cover the back of the bookmark.  I am thinking of all kinds of things I could do with this.

Stay Crafty, My Friends!

What a find! I just love those old book covers. This would make a great place to record Christmas or winter memories.

Great book, my friend!

Hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, and that you're still celebrating in the spirit of the season!

Looking forward to sharing with you in 2012!!!

Hugs, my friend!

Quick question on this paper junk journal. Are you familiar with any inexpensive wire binding machines and where to buy them? I've only seen the wicked expensive ones. Thanks!
