Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine has just recently released a beautiful, brand new special issue, called Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters Volume 2. The first volume of Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters is still one of my favorite special issues to date. i was happy to have some of my work in volume 1, so I was thrilled to be invited to create some projects for Volume 2 as well.

It’s jam-packed full of fun, and practical, ideas for your paper crafting. It’s got anything from using up your scraps, to organizing your space, to recycling and reusing your packaging, to DIY embellisments, and so much more!

I’m thrilled to have five projects published in this issue, and today I’m sharing my favorite one.

It was simple, really. I Cut a large rectangle from the side of a large cereal box to form the base of my cover pages. Once I covered them with pretty scrapbook paper you can no longer tell it once held cereal. Cool, huh?

The inside pages are made from various patterned papers and vellum. I left all the pages blank so I could add photos, journaling, etc. when I’m ready to use it. The pages are bound together with baker’s twine.
