Several of my colleagues and relatives are having birthdays in the next couple of months, so I thought I ought to start with the crafting in time. Paper work isn't as time-consuming as felt work, but there are more opportunities to screw up the project, so haste isn't a good thing.

I made the birthday journal for KA, a young colleague first, because I had a fairly good idea what I wanted to do. I made the journal using 6 double cards and 6 envelopes, and mostly decorated it with funny cards that I had bought in Austria, oh, some 25 or so years ago. Hence the recycling part.

So, let's take a look at the results. First, the front cover:



Then the back cover:



The cardboard paper came ready-made with the inscriptions; I thought they were very fitting for a young person's birthday.

More pics behind the tag because I don't want to clutter up everyone's Friends page )

I never thought I'd be able to use these cards for anything all those years ago; I just bought them because they were so funny. I'm glad that I could put them to good use and cheer someone up.
