Love this - I've been saving the brown packing paper that comes with some Amazon and school supplies boxes. I had planned to wet and wrinkle too. Will have to go get some fusible stuff to put 2 pages together!

Thanks for all of the info.

I'm going to try it with glue and see how that works, the fusible stuff can get a little pricey. I'm hoping the right amount and right sort of glue won't gum up sewing machine needles. I have to say, the fusible stuff occasionally does that anyhow.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

If it's ONLY to provide structure, what about freezer paper? Its another layer, and is kind of stiff, without any glue. And since you're stitching it together anyway, it just needs some rigidity?

The sticky stuff glues two sheets of brown paper together, I imagined that would strengthen them somewhat. Freezer paper is only sticky on one side so it could be used to line each sheet but it's shiny on the other side, the one that would show, so I don't know how things would adhere to it. It might come loose too with bending, not where it's sewn but if it detached from the paper it was meant to strengthen... only one way to find out though, I challenge y'all to make some books! Or a card even. I did make a card too Wink.

I see what you are doing there, lady. Sneaky, that.

I was thinking the freezer paper would be the Oreo stuffing, only. So two pieces of brown, one inside of freezer. Although I get the adhesion of the stabilizer makes it more firm, the 3 layers of paper would be stronger than just 2, not sticky, and less expensive.

I didn't know you could use interfacing with something that's not traditional fabric! This changes everything!!!
I love being the recipient of this delightful journal, and I'm saving my favorite Halloween bits to add to the pages.

I am pretty adventurous when it comes to supplies, I will do a lot of off-use experimenting. The house hold tools and spackle are not safe from my crafty adventures, vice versa too, haha.
