Graze Box Recycled Journals

Got sent a graze box a while back which had an array of delightful snacks.
It came through normal post so there was no need to wait in.  After I finished it I decided to see what I could make from the packaging

With the small book you get with your first order I made a mini book with a wrap around clasp and will use this to be a little notebook
With the rest of the materials I made a bigger journal.  The box serves as the cover and I used a range of paper and tissue paper to cover this.  On the inside I used the tray that the boxes sit in as places where you can either put photographs or your favourite sayings, inspiration cards. 

I used magazine and calender pages which were matt in finish and this made it easier to add paint and collage material for the signature pages
I will be using the bigger journal to do a series of images.  I will share more as I go along. 

It was great fun making the different items and great to see how we can reuse and repurpose a variety of things for creative purposes
