Our Traveling Journals become snapshots of our collective lives, despite the fact that we don’t live anywhere near each other. But inevitably you have to send the Traveling Journal on to its next destination so you don’t get to hold on to those photos for very long. Here is a cool idea for making a more permanent display of friend photos in your home. It’s a creative DIY idea from Papernstitch.
Just head to your local thrift store and pick up some beautiful, but possibly damaged an unwanted books. Choose a photo that you love– maybe even a copy of one that is in your Traveling Journal– and use this repurposed book as a way to display it proudly. Papernstitch offers a step-by-step tutorial so you can have this frugal frame decorating your walls in no time.
