crooked little books...

Well, I made these little "mini journals" a few weeks ago using Tascha's tutorial and whatever I had on hand to substitute. (This means that I used recycled packaging material, work trash labels, painted my own decorative paper, etc. I even carved the star stamp out of an old eraser. Also, Mod Podge still rules.)

Inner critic says, "You cut everything all crooked. You don't even have a good craft knife, much less a paper cutter. You used scissors and a box cutter. You cut the corners too close, so the edges aren't covered properly. And these photos... ugh. Not very good."

But guess what? Screw inner critic.

I made these. For the first time. And I kinda like 'em.

I was inspired to make these by Tascha, and inspired to post them by walkinthewoods. She posted hers a while back and they look great.

Those look awesome! I cut the corners too close sometimes too. It's a learning experience. You will keep getting better. I think you did a great job for your first time!

Wow. Thanks for saying that, and thanks again for making that video. The video made the process make sense, and made me want to try something I never would have attempted before. Now I'm addicted.
