I thought I'd share this snowflake shaped journal I made. When you open it up, it has a shape of a snowflake. I made a heart shaped journal last year and I wanted to do another fun shape, but something different. I was cutting a paper snowflake and thought I would try using that shape to make a journal. Here's how it turned out:

I really like it. I never thought about creating different shaped journals, I bet it would be fun to work on. I like the idea of a heart too. Or maybe a star or a hand!

life without crafting would be like living in the dark.

what did you use for the cover and how did you cut it?  I want to make an anatomical heart shaped one....

I used binder boards for the covers (I also added decorative paper to it afterwards. Usually when I'm using binder board, I cover it in decorative paper, but I decided to leave some of it showing for this journal). You can also use cardboard, but I think binder board is more sturdy. I cut a paper snowflake and traced the shape on to the binder board. I just used scissors to cut it out and then sanded the edges. I cut the snowflake shape in half to create the front and back covers and just binded it together.
