Cereal Box Journals

heirloom gardens - rosejournals--1fish journali am journalflower journal

These are journals that I like making out of cereal boxes!(Sorry the pictures aren’t the best- they are kind of hard to scan) ย It takes a lot of time because of the many steps involved but they are fun and a good way to re-use boxes! I am working now on a small one (an orzo box) that I think will be good to put my favorite Bible verses in. My 6 year old likes the fishy journal best ๐Ÿ™‚ If you are interested in how I make them so you can make one of your own let me know! ย or if you would like me to make you one I’d be very happy to !:) Be blessed today knowing you are loved and held and seen. Our Heavenly Father’s heart for you is bigger than the sun! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. You are amazing, I would have never thought of this – and even if I did, I do not have your gift of artful hands. Would love to know the details of how they are made ๐Ÿ™‚ and would love one but wouldn’t put you through that trouble or expense.

  2. Thanks so much Paris. They are not hard, but just require a lot of steps. I would be happy to make one for you if you would like. It just might take me some time to do and to get it to you. My email is susieteramura@yahoo.com. If you would like, email me with which style you like – flowers verse etc. and your address. I can also give you details by email as how to make one of your own.I am happy you like them. Blessings ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. As soon as I saw the title, I knew this would be fun! I am very curious about their construction. My limited experience creating new notebook covers was not a huge success.
    I love the one with the Scripture verse, and the one with the roses, and of course, the fish… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Elaine! I am glad you like them- Basically the boxes are painted with Gesso first on both sides- This gives texture and makes the surface white and able to be painted. Then you paint your design, add washi tape to the edges. Then they are sealed and covered with mode podge. When it is dry you put the paper in it and tie with a ribbon ๐Ÿ™‚ ( thats the general idea ๐Ÿ™‚
