Festive Friday Number NINE - Holiday Altered Mini Journal Using Recycled Wrapping Paper

Welcome to the ninth installment of Terri Sproul's 2012 Festive Friday Bloghop! It's May already and Mother's Day is two-days away. You should have arrived here from Amanda's Page. To get back to the beginning of the bloghop CLICK HERE.

Happy Festive Friday! Since I have been making Christmas Cards every week for Unscripted Sketches, I thought I would change things up and decorate a mini journal. I have been into a frenzy of greencrafting since Earth Day a couple weeks back and this altered 4" x 6" mini journal is now covered with a piece of wrapping paper and a few scraps from my seasonal stash.


C'mon...admit it! I know I'm not the only one who saves lovely wrapping paper to use for crafty projects. This book background is wrapping paper, the tree is a paper die cut by My Minds Eye wrapped with some fuzzy fiber topped off with a mirror star that I colored yellow with a permanent Bic Mark-its pen. I used some Miracle Tape to adhere on the green ribbon layered with white ric-rac and to adhere a red metallic pipe cleaner that had been fiber wrapped with some Basic Grey fibers. This will make a lovely little gift!

  3. I love it! I also save wrapping paper to reuse in my craft projects - not that I get much these days because most people I know use reusable gift bags SO when I do get some I hoard it away for another project. :)

  4. as always, very creative and lovely!
