Project - Homemade Smash

Several years ago, I picked up a thick 7 x 7 spiral-bound journal. It was a pretty journal featuring a flower and music theme in a sort of vintage look. I bought it because I liked it but wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I finally decided to make a homemade Smash book out of it. I took it apart, altered the cover to reflect the things I love but retained the original inside and back covers. i used a variety of papers from my stash, including a paper pad by K&CO, and cut them to 6-3/4 x 6-3/4. I retained some of the original lined paper for journaling sheets and interspersed them throughout the album. I also cut down some plastic photo sleeves, added pockets, file folders and assorted sized pages punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I will be using the book to store old letters, newspaper clippings and other memorabilia, and for reflections, favorite sayings, Scripture verses, etc. I will probably add ribbon, beads, and charms to the spiral binding.
