Today I want to share with you a Faith Book I made for my mother. This is my version of a Junk Journal. She is a newly born again Christian and I wanted to do something special for her. Since there are some personal things in the journal, I am only sharing the cover.
I cut the shape of the book using the Sizzix die, chipboard and pattern papers. I covered it with some Paperstudio’s faith paper. For the frame, I painted a bottom of a soda can with metallic gold paint. To hide the gaps, I outlined the frame with half back pearls. For the flowers, I used two sizes of the Marvy flower punches and inked the petal. The centers of the flowers are half back pearls. I also used Prima pearls for the flourishes.
In the inside, I added scriptures, titles, journaling spot, tags and personal notes. I also decorated the pages with flowers and pearls.
I bound the book with hemp and duct tape. To cover the duct tape, I used a piece of pattern paper. It turned out great and she loved it! Krafthead~
*Note* If you decide to cut a soda pop can, please be careful! It is very sharp and can cut you*
