Journals, Planners, and Scrapbooks You Can Make Using Recycled Materials

cardboard box book cover from Creativity PromptAlthough there are lots of ways to upcycle cardboard boxes into book covers, I really love this cardboard box mini book tutorial from Creativity Prompt because the size of the cardboard box that you use is the size of the book–length, width, and depth–that you create. Therefore, if you happen to see a cardboard box that you think would be the perfect size for a book, you can recreate it exactly.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
