I haven't been on this site in a while and I thought I'd post some of my recent projects. Smiley

I've seen all types of weirdly shaped journals before. I remember seeing one on craftster of little butterfly journals. I usually just make rectangular ones, but last Valentine's Day, I thought it'd  be cute if I tried making a heart shaped one.

It's a half heart when it's closed:

And opens up in to a whole heart stitched together.

I also thought I'd post my boxes. These are made with binder's board, the same stuff I use to make cover of journals and I basically cut measurements of each side of the box (and top) and glue it together. Then I cover it with fabric or decorative paper.

This Little Piggy Box:

Postcards from Italy:


I made this one for someone and really like how it turned out:

Mailing Package Box (this is my favorite):

Thanks for looking.

These are great. I like the postcard box and the bingo box the most. I also love the gold marbling on the heart notebook.

Ooooo.  I love your boxes.  I think my favorites are the bingo box and the mailing package box.

The heart journal is pretty cool, too.
