My First File Folder Junk Journal.

I made a mixed media cover with a couple of coats of Mod Podge.

 This is the back.

This is the inside, before I added all the pages. I used a strip of Capri Sun foil in the center for strength.

The tag I just made out of scraps.

The next few pictures are the pages. On the left is one of the coffee dyed papers I made.

I made my own splatter paper. On the right is an old hymn page out of a dictionary. Since its real fragile I painted one side with Mod Podge, and hope it will hold together.

This is a card I got, and I liked it, so I added it to my journal. On the left is a small plastic pocket. It's attached to a bigger pocket. It's from a shower curtain display, we got from a store that's going out of business.

The insert on the right will hold 4 (2x2) pictures.

On the right is a plastic pocket.(The other part from the shower curtain display)

Here I added a Capri Sun pocket.

I sewed everything together with dental floss. I most likely will make an other one, since I had a request for one. These are fun to make. I hope you will give it a try. Blessings, Renate

Another Faux Midori.

On this Midori I glued origami paper over my cardstock, and did a couple of coats of Mod Podge, inside and out. I also used eyelets again.

 The back.

 I used 4 booklets again.

I made a plastic insert with a sheet protector. Instead of taping the open side up, I used my heatgun and a metal ruler and fused it shut.

This is an envelope insert.

Then I added a few planners.

A folder I made. Found the tutorial on You Tube. I wrote that little saying, one morning while I was at work.

A little bag of bling. I don't have a fuse tool, so I just used my heatgun and a metal ruler to fuse it shut. Works quite well.

An insert made out of magazine paper.

4-pocket insert. Tutorial on You Tube.

2 more booklets.
I like makimg these Faux Midori planners. I'm already working on another one.
I hope everyone has a great week.
Blessings, Renate

Here is my finished bag. On the bottom I glued tissue paper with Mod Podge all around. Then I just added some charms I made.

Tote Bag.

I got this tutorial from: under paper tote tutorial. I'm still working on it since I still want to embellish it somehow. Will post updates.
Blessings, Renate

Mini Matchbox Suitcase.

I found the video tutorial on You Tube from Suzie QTT.
On the wrap I used old maps from a dictionary and put a layer of Mod Podge on it.

Origami Blizzard Book.

I found the tutorial at: or on You Tube.

Pinwheel Fun Fold Card.

 I used the Martha Stewart scoreboard with the envelope piece. I used a 10 x10 cardstock. I scored at 4 1/2 on all 4 sides. Then you cut out the triangles, like you would make an envelope. Then you flip the cardstock over and remove the envelope piece, and score at 1 1/2 on all 4 edges. And then fold and turn over and fold again, and just fold everything together clockwise.
