I’ve planned to do this for a while now, but I had been a bit lazy about taking pictures everyday . Goodbye dreams of Project Life.
Somehow a while ago I managed to take a bunch of daily photos.
Then I started thinking about the binding. I did not want to use either thread or twine nor binding rings or a hard cover. I’ve been a bit tired of that. So I ended up with this. I’m not sure if you could call it a binding anyway!? It’s just a nice paper staple in a half box! But I feel great about it.
Let’s have a look:
I started with creating page to page. I did not care about how to hold everything together in the end that much. Meanwhile, I thought I could use a box or a bag or whatever.. Creating the inner pages was the most important.
I just love to use the Life Pages cards for my journaling. Whenever I feel like there’s something missing, I just layer on a card.
I just stapled the papers as I layered them. After I finished all my days I looked for a box and couldn’t find one that fitted, oops. I took one that was actually too big and cutted and folded it a bit smaller till it matched to my paper staple and decorated it.
So actually that box is my “binding”, but I really like that kind of unfinished and messy touch that it’s brings without a classical binding and will do it again
