Paper Crafting: Altered Art DIY Journal Cover

We love personalized journals. There’s something so appealing in making the outside of your journal as special as the inside. This is an easy paper craft tutorial that shows you some fun paper crafting techniques to help you customize any journal. Why not turn the “Plain Jane” journal into a completely unique craft project that showcases your creativity? This is also a great craft idea for kids because it shows you how to alter the basic journal without spending big bucks. It’s the perfect back to school craft!

Paper Crafting: Altered Art DIY Journal Cover

Once you have written, sketched, embellished, and painted all the pages in your beloved art journal, it’s now time to alter the cover to make it your own. Give your journal a beautifully textured and layered cover using sheets of fabric, interfacing, paper, and metal — it’s quick and easy to put together. Your coffee table will thank you for it!

Paper Crafting: Altered Art DIY Journal Cover

 

Supplies

  • Fusible stiff interfacing
  • Cotton fabric
  • Felt
  • Handmade paper (it’s softer and more malleable)
  • Heavy craft foil
  • Embossing folder and machine
  • Alcohol inks and applicator
  • Tacky glue
  • Sanding block
  • Chisel-tip marker
  • Iron
  • Journal

Paper Crafting: Altered Art DIY Journal Cover

1.   Emboss the craft foil and trim it to the desired size. Rub a base coat of a light-colored alcohol ink over the top, then blend additional colors on top, using a pouncing motion with the applicator.

2.  Gently sand the inked foil to expose some of the silver on the raised areas. This technique distresses the surface but it also enhances the embossed pattern. Ink the edges with a marker and set aside.

Paper Crafting: Altered Art DIY Journal Cover

3.  Iron the fabric to the fusible side of the stiff interfacing and trim to a size that’s slightly smaller than your journal cover.

4.  Trim the felt and handmade paper to desired sizes and play with the arrangement of the layers until you like the result. Glue each layer down in sequence, then glue the embossed foil panel on top.

5.  Add whatever sentiments or additional embellishments you like.

Glam Up Your Handmade Greeting Cards with Decorative Trims

I love using a set of coordinated papers to make handmade greeting cards. Everything works together beautifully, from the darks to the lights to the pretty patterns. Adding a touch of bling certainly adds extra interest to the flat cardstock, but I want to add even more personality and dimension to my DIY cards.

Glam Up Your Handmade Greeting Cards with Decorative Trims

Ribbons and washi tape are lovely, but what I really love using are decorative trims – the kind for sewing! Decorative trims come in so many different designs and they really make your homemade cards pop with frolic and fun!

Glam Up Your Handmade Greeting Cards with Decorative Trims

Supplies:

  • White lacy embroidered trim
  • Blue folded card – 5” x 7”
  • Pale background cardstock panel – 4.5” x 6.5”
  • Patterned cardstock panel – 4” x 5”
  • Markers – pink, yellow, blue
  • Scotch tape
  • Paper adhesive
  • Clear gel glue
  • Self-adhesive rhinestones

Glam Up Your Handmade Greeting Cards with Decorative Trims
1. Color a 6.5″ length of white embroidered trim with markers – just tap the color on without rubbing the delicate threads too much.

Glam Up Your Handmade Greeting Cards with Decorative Trims
2. Ink the edges of the background panel with a marker. I really like how each layer of cardstock stands out when you ink the edges.

3. Slice the patterned panel into 4 strips (even or varied widths) and ink the edges. Glue them like windowpanes (with space in-between) to the background panel, working from the outside in toward the center for even spacing.

Glam Up Your Handmade Greeting Cards with Decorative Trims
4. Use clear gel glue to adhere the trim to the front of the card panel. Dab a bit of glue along the edges to prevent unraveling.

5. Adhere the embellished panel to the folded card, add a few rhinestones in the flowers and you’re done!

The M O S T Sophisticated Paper Flower Crafts

I used to just brush off paper flower crafts like they were just something to use scraps for, but these fun paper crafts have become a new way of saving money and putting a personalized touch to any home or decor. You mostly see paper flower bouquets for weddings and center pieces on Pinterest, but they can be for more than just weddings! These delicate paper flowers will look great in your home as some colorful accents with any pattern or color of your choosing.

The M O S T Sophisticated Paper Flower Crafts

Paper Flower Crafts

I know it’s a little difficult to craft with paper without it looking like a five year old’s room (trust me, that’s how my room currently looks), so that’s why I picked out the most adult-looking flowers—and by that I mean they look like actual flowers. I think the comparison is a little uncanny sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I love fresh flowers as much as the next person, but buying them bi-monthly gets so expensive, and I don’t exactly have an expansive garden where I can just pick and propagate bushes and clusters of perennials. These are a way to do some cheap decorating, but still get a sophisticated look. Thrifty crafting to decorate and cut corners is awesome,  but we don’t want our living rooms to look like the craft room threw-up.

Although I love using vintage book crafts, the English major in me still cringes when I think of tearing out book pages and cutting it up. For these easy crafts, you can use every paper flower color of the spectrum or recycle old books to make unique patterned flowers. Unlike real flowers, you aren’t limited to the laws of nature. If you want black or blue roses, you can simply just pick out the paper. What you decide to do with them, you’re sure to love these super realistic paper flowers. Just for comparison purposes, a picture of the *real deal* is on the left, while the craft is on the right.

 

Quilled Spider Chrysanthemum Flowers

Chrysanthemum

from thegardenhelper.com

So having the petals quilled gives the craft a little more texture, even if it doesn’t look exactly like the real thing. It’s a little reminiscent of the Art Deco era, so these would make great Gatsby party decorations.

 

 

Soft Pink Paper Peonies

Peonie

from crickethillgarden.com

These look just as delicate as the actual peonies. Clusters of these to make a bouquet would be beautiful.

 

 

 

Deep Purple Paper Dahlias

Dahlia

from stepbystep.com

These meticulous flowers look great in the metallic paper, and they look just like the flower.

 

 

Dazzling Orange Tiger Lily

Speckled with black, the bright orange paper is a sleek flower paper craft.

 

 

Incredibly Realistic Paper Hydrangeas

from plantingdirections.com

Hydrangeas are my absolute favorite, so this paper flower craft look incredible compared to the real thing. Can you see the difference?

 

 

 

Romance Rose

Despite the colors, these single-roses include the leaves and the blossoming petals.

 

 

 

Mulberry Paper Roses

Mulberry RosesWell, I guess Mulberry Roses aren’t real—or at least I couldn’t find any pictures of real ones, but they’re still just as cute!

 

 

Perfect Paper Succulents

from crateandbarrel.com

These are a simple way to get the rustic succulent decor going. Even though succulents are a very low maintenance plant, these paper crafts have absolutely no maintenance whatsoever.
