Fall Back Junk Journal Rolodex Holder

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project that I created for the Eileen Hull's September Art with Heart  Fall Back Challenge. I decided I wanted to try my hand at creating a rolodex holder with the Scoreboards XL Die Box Square and this is what I came up with. As seen below I cut out three of the box shapes from mattboard. 


Next I measured and cutdown the boxes to form my rolodex holder.


I adhered all edges together.


Cloths pin come in handy and keep everything from coming a part while it dries.


I glued the chevron cardstock in the bottom of the holder and then cut two pieces of mattboard and punched holes which I used a rolodex as a template to center the holes. Next I cut two rounded  dowels to fit and then painted with a soft yellow acrylic paint.


I covered the box with cardstock, placed the dowels in the holes, added legs and finished off with a "imagine" sticker from my stash.


I do have a rolodex diecut but it is smaller than the holder so I dug out my rolodex punch (you can get this at an office supply place). 


I went through my massive stash of scraps of scrapbook paper, cardstock, graph paper and book pages and punched out twenty cards for my holder.


The plan is to "try" to either decorate or journal something everyday on each of the cards. Also I plan on create more cards as I go along…fingers crossed. ;-) 


Be sure to stop Eileen Hull Art with Heart Challenge and check out the rest of the entries for more inspiration!


I hope this inspires you to create one for yourself. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!
