Collaged spiral Dollar Tree journals
Gosh, I’ve had these little spiral journals for YEARS! Bought them back when we had our shop and was offering to personalize them with monogram letters. Never did sell very well, and they got packed away when we closed our store. In my recently renewed quest to ‘use up what I have’, I can across the box of them and decided to fix them up and sell them on etsy.
There were some in the original batch that I bought that the covers were ALL kraft color. It’s these with the strip of color on the edge that I had a hard time with because I had to coordinate that side color with what I put on the front. There were also some with pink on the sides.
They are actually quite nice little journals. I’ve not seen these same ones at DT since ‘back then’, BUT it doesn’t HAVE to be a ‘blank cover’ journal for you to alter. Just be use that it is a color and pattern that you can easily work . OR, if you can’t find a journal, grab a good ole composition book! Altering those is quite popular these days!
The purple and green ones were much harder to find the right papers for. I just don’t have much in those colors; and I was NOT about to go out and BUY any more. Just as I was about to resign myself to the fact that maybe these were just ‘meant to be’ tossed in the Goodwill donation bag . . .I found paper that worked!
And with the few plain kraft cover ones I was able to add more papers to the front; three layers here: old dictionary page, scrapbook paper then old sheet music. The embossed kraft color embellishments were the perfect finishing touch!
These will soon be listed for sale in my etsy shop.
