I was looking for a way to use up lots of Xmas papers leftovers, printables, old stickers, borders, stamps etc
 Xmas junk journals signatures on YouTube were inspiration for this and made these, one is the cover of an Xmas signature has 8 pages all halves of A4 so a folded A5. Sewing is with sharp embroidery needle and Ikea red cotton thread. Size is A6 so card size. And the filler pages are photocopy paper sometimes plain sometimes stained with tea or coffee. The picture below I used a coffee pad to stain so as not to cover all the white. The scalloped edge pocket I use a ruler with half round shape it is still attached to the cardstock front and folded over glued edges. The cover has some gum arabic diluted with water which gives a sheen to paper cover it is not seen in scan ,
 the left side red glitter is with acrylic gloss gel and again it is not seen in scan

More scans. The front of the scalloped. And 3 other signatures. I do not trim the edges as I like the uneven edge. These have no gum arabic yet as I ran out of it, so waiting for some in the mail.

What a good idea to use up those little bits of holiday "stuff" that seems to just collect!

I also love glitter, so nice way to use up that as well...

I can see making these to hold a lot of embellishments and papers to have on hand when inspiration strikes to make something else as well...nice!

Thanks for sharing!
