This is one of the smallest journal I've ever made! It's 1" wide, 1.25" tall and about an 1" thick; it fits right in a tablespoon.
I started makiing the journal by tearing out a page from my Dylusions Creative Journal. The page already had some stenciling left on it, but it was still perfectly fine to use.
Using my steel ruler as a guide, I tore the page in strips vertically. I like the torn edge look so I didn't use scissors to cut my strips.
I tore each strip into 2" pieces and folded them in half. Then I took three pieces and created a small book, also known as a signature. Each signature makes 6 pages. I created four signatures, so my journal has 24 pages total.
Afterwards, I used some dental floss (free samples from the dentist) to bind the signatures together.
Then I used some graffers tape and taped it over the binding edge.
For the cover, I had some sample leather pieces that I glued around the signatures, and then I added some dyed seam binding on the edges to close the journal together.
Now the fun part: to color all the pages with some backgrounds colors.
I used Tim Holtz distress inks, Caran d'Ache Neocolor II crayons and a water brush to colored the pages.
I journaled, stamped, painted, stenciled and pasted in my itsy bitsy book.
