Behold my new journals:


I was making a photo journal (which is another story) and was gluing the pages together when I realised that I already have a glued together stack of paper that I'll never use- my 2006 Harry Potter desk calendar. Then figured that since I was going to be making books out of that, why not use my 2005 Harry Potter wall calendar for the covers?


Front covers: The first two are covered with pages from the wall calendar. The third blue one is just a watercoloured piece of sketch paper with an image of Draco Malfoy from a battered old poster I had. Oh, and the first one also has a book label that I had lying around because the cover still looked a little bare.


Back covers

And I keep calling them journals, but really I'm going to use them to write stories in, because that's what I do. Cheesy

Sweet!  Smiley I wish I had one to write stories in! (How cheesy does Malfoy look? Lol.)

AH! Love love love love love! They look great!
Draco's face is hilarious, hahaha.

But anyways, I was thinking of what to do with my Potter pics from this massive calendar I got... like... 3 years ago. This is definitely up there on the list of solutions!

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone!

I just used PVA to glue the cover on the first journal, but after that they're actually just folded on, as though you were covering a school book.

I figure that if it looks like they're going to fall apart, well... I still have the rest of the calendar to re-cover them!
