One of our very favorite embellishments is our journal cards. We've been including them with our collections for a long, long time. We are always looking for new ways to use them all up, so we challenged Biker Chick Robbie Herring to think of a quick and simple project that highlights how to use our journal cards in a clever way...
Mini Brag Book by Robbie Herring
If you are like me, finding a way to carry pictures of your kids can be a challenge. So many wallets these days don't have photo holders and if they do, they are flimsy. Making a brag book is a great way to carry your favorite pictures along with you all the time. One thing that I have found frustrating about brag books over the years is that quite often, they are too bulky to carry around in your purse. I came up with this idea to solve the problem.
Make yourself a brag book out of trading card sleeves. These sleeves are the perfect size to fit wallet size pictures! Add in Little Yellow Bicycle Journal Cards for decoration and to document the details and you are good to go! This is a SUPER QUICK and Easy way to show off your pictures.
Keep it Simple! And Flat! Add a couple of layers of paper plus a few stickers. A journal card with room to tell the story or the date, plus a few stickers and some embroidery floss are another detail that will work well in this project. Anything flat goes!
Tip: As I've mentioned, these holders are tough and will protect your photos! You might want to try a Crop-a-dile or a heavy duty hole punch to make your holes for the ring.
