From the Designer: "I combined many products from the Prime Publishing Event to create a Journaling Box. The Box contains three Japanese bookbinding journals, a bookmark, and a crocheted pen pouch. The box The box began as two parts. I cut off parts and created a hinge with packing tape. Using the Ultra Mod Podge, I attached the floral diamond painting to the cover, trimmed away the excess, and then covered the rest of the outside and inside with coordinating scrapbooking paper. Some of the edges of the box have a silver edge which is made using vinyl strips from StyleTec. Inside the box there is a pocket made with Rinea foil paper to hold a bookmark made from scrapbooking paper (double sided) and it includes words made from StyleTec vinyl. The bookmark was put together using the Xyron sticker maker. The Pouch I combined the two colors of yarn from Spinrite and crocheted a pen pouch. I added a black button for the closure. The Pouch contains the pens provided by Marvy Uchida. The Journals The three journals are created from sketch paper and scrapbooking paper. They are sewn together using Japanese bookbinding techniques. Each journal is a different technique. One journal has a decorative element that was attached using the Xyron sticker maker."
