Corrugated Mini Book: A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Sunday, July 26, 2015

This week, the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to use a specialty paper. I chose corrugated. With corrugated, you get fabulous color, durability, and of course...the awesome texture.
Like most crafters, I have hundreds of pretty little papers that I can't bear to part with. This week, I used these little snippets to create a miniature junk journal. This was so easy that I can't wait to share! I punched a hole through the individual papers (very little cutting involved...I liked them different lengths) and punched holes in the corrugated covers and tied it together with string. That's it! Now I have a pretty, yet sturdy, mini journal in my handbag!

I love the little stamp that decorates my journal cover. The stamp is by Prima. It stamps a perfectly detailed image each time and is about half of the cost of most company's. That's impressive!

What will you create with specialty paper? Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.

  10. Love, love, love, love, LOVE this one! It has the book nerd in me all giddy! What a great idea and I adore the way the corrugated texture looks on the cover. The light turquoise-looking wash that you did on the background. Don't take this the wrong way, but this makes me want to steal your handbag! I'd give everything back but this! :)
