Hand stitched journal with concertina box and card

Hello everyone, Miriam here with my latest project for Meg's Garden. I have made a small journal to go with a concertina box and a card,. The journal is hand stitched and I made a mask to make the edges look aged and applied vintage photo, also added a few sentiments on alternative pages. On the inside I edged the concertina box with strips I have embossed and topped with vintage photo and did the same with the little card, also added a sentiment inside the card, hope you like these they were really fun to make .All products used are listed below
