I really do spend way too much time watching crafting YouTube videos, and not enough time actually making crafty things. This weekend I decided to change the paradigm. Well, maybe not exactly. I saw an excellent video from Treasure Books on making a Christmas star card. It was beautiful! I thought I could use some of my junk journaling supplies and do a Valentine’s Day star card, so I did.
The front cover is layered paper with a felt heart I cut out of a little jewelry bag. I used seam binding for the closure and added a pink polka dot binder clip to use when it is opened up.
For the first section, I used a wildflower field guide page, a faux ticket and a letter pressed tag that says love. I added a thesaurus page with the word love and a glitter heart. The next section was made with scrapbook paper and a bunch of heart cut from scraps. I’ve had those hearts forever (and I still have a million more). The third page includes “The Song of the Red Clover Fairy” from the Flower Fairy collection. Section four is more scrapbook paper, a project life card and a small gold envelope with a matching card. The fifth page is red graph paper with a wooden heart and a handmade pocket. I added a magnetic heart page marker. The final page is various washi tapes and heart stickers.
This was a super fun project as I got to be creative with all the odds and ends I had in my craft room.
