Folder Journal - making magic with office supplies

Somewhere in my future is a more serious book with coptic stitch bindings and pretty endpapers...

.. but for now, I wanted to share a project that was inspired by the Jan/Feb 2011 issue of "Cloth Paper Scissors" called FOLDER JOURNAL by Heidi Sekovski and Karin Winter.

Office Supplies: manilla file folders, hole punch, "artsy" reinforcements, paperclips, ledger paper. And from My Stash: handmade acrylic background papers, markers, sharpie paint pens, ribbon, caran d'ache water soluable wax pastels and a few photos thrown in! (view part 2 of this project here.)

Jen Mason, editor of the magazine, has a video showing some of the folders from the magazine article! here
