Spiral Bound Journal

I spent a few days last week making some more of my little blank books. They are great fun to do and they give me the opportunity to go through my extensive collection of decorative papers. This also provides a much needed break from the jewelry making.

After making a few books with fun papers, I found some notes I had made a while back, on clever ideas for covering these books. The best idea involved randomly gluing together monopoly money, collage style. I have several old monopoly games that I found at yard sales over the years. I knew I was buying them for a reason, I just didn't know what the reason was until I came up with this idea.

I even had enough to cover the inside plates. This one is a keeper -- it won't be for sale. But I have plenty of little books listed in my "other" etsy shop, A Peaceful Life.
