Prima PPP, Bloom Girl Holidays, DIY Christmas

Hi, me again! Another recycled package with an awesome goodie inside...
it all started with this humble packaging...
I cut the store hanger piece and flattened the piece

after it was flat I used an embossing folder

 I decided not to bother with taking the label and used it to decorate
for the inside I used Jamie's A4 watercolor paper
to create my journal

I pierced the holes to hand bound it

I hand tore the edges and loved the way the papers core is so cottony

to wrap my journal I used a piece of trim and made a buttonhole to close with a hello pastel brad

to adhere the trim I used 3d gloss gel

this is how it looks

to hide the brad and have a place to write the owners name I used this Epiphany stamp on the inside cover

I wiped a bit of gold crackle on the outside

spine view

side view

back view, since I had flattened the package, I have a wrap around design

I hope you get inspired to try your own DIY Christmas!
