Bind It All Extravanganza!

I plan on making quite a few Bind It All journals for the craft fair. If I don't get a space, I'll give them away as Christmas gifts! I actually used up lots of paper scraps on these! I used Provo Craft Slab papers, lots of rhinestones, a couple of Primas, and a whole bunch of ribbon! The first two are 2"x4", and the next two are 4"x4".





My chipboard covers that I have to work with are 4"x4". Since I'm using 4"x6" index cards for the pages, I'm left with 2"x4" index card pieces. Since I have all of those leftover pieces, I decided to make the 2"x4" journals too. At first I thought that size would be too small, but it's not! It's really cute, and they would be perfect for a purse or a briefcase. I hope to make more journals today. Once again though, I'm not sure what to charge for something like this! Pricing is definitely going to be my biggest issue! It's going to be very difficult to price the journals, because journals can be purchased from the $1 spot in Target and in Michael's. I would like to think that those journals aren't as cute as these, and these are worth it, but you never know if shoppers will think that!!

Thanks for stopping by!

So cute! What a great way to use up little bits of patterned paper that are too good to throw away. I'm sure these will sell really well, fingers crossed you find out soon that you've got a space at the fair!

Thanks for stopping by Carol! The screen is made out of 12x12 chipboard cut into three pieces, so its about 13x13 with all of the add-ons! You can't see it, but the back is also covered. I am going to add onto it someday so that it is reversible! These are super easy to make, and it doesn't take much time or supplies! You could probably pump out a few for your craft show fairly fast! I am making them as Christmas gifts, but with little pockets at the bottom and with pictures and extra embellishments! I stop by your blog daily-I just love seeing all the new, wonderful things you create! Maybe someday I can be as awesomely creative as you! :)
