Collage journal gift

I made this journal for my friend for a holiday present.

The front
The binding
The back
Close up

How I made this:

I used half sheets of 8.5" x 11" printer paper that I had left over from making zines (there is an odd number of pages in one of my zines that prints two pages to a sheet, so I am always left with a bunch of blank half sheets). Then I cute a piece of card stock in half so it was the same size, and cut out a bunch of magazine strips that had prints I liked. Then I arranged them all on the card stock so there was no white space left, and used a glue stick to glue them to the card stock. Then I put all the blank pages together with the cover (card stock) page, and stapled it in the middle (it's important to get it pretty much exactly in the middle so it will fold in half correctly) with the long stapler I use for binding zines. That's it!
