Elsewhere: Make a Recycled Card Journal

In my latest guest blog post for, I created a tutorial demonstrating how to create a journal with an old card. Made in conjunction with their Earth Week theme, this is a great, recycled craft project that gives you the opportunity to add practical use to a cherished card from a loved one.

For the example in my guest post, I made a small journal with a place card I had laying around. After I finished the post, I decided to create another journal using a beautiful card I received from my friend, Shaun. It's perfect for poetry, grocery lists or random doodles. I'll keep it in my bag for whenever the inspiration hits.


  1. What an excellent idea!! I hate just throwing away gorgeous or precious cards, and this gives them new life!

    1. I'm glad you like it, Isabeau! If you decide to make some for yourself, please feel free to share them with me. I would love to see them! :)
