ATCs in "An Octopus's Garden" Journal

This is my SteamPunk influenced journal "An Octopus's Garden". I have learned that cutting a column off a page of Trading card sheets makes for a perfect fit in my converted notebook Journals. What a fun way to incorporate some favorite ATCs into a journal! The more I work with these notebook binders the more I like them. They are so incredibly versatile. The rest of this journal notebook can be viewed here.

Great idea!
We artist are good at thinking outside the box :)
I curated an exhibition on atc's /aceo's in 2005.
I took a A3 size artist plastic portfolio sleeve and stitched it up and down to create individual pockets, slit the top of each little pocket so that the cards would fit.
Then I just hung them up to display the cards.

i am with you!
the ring binders make excellent journal keepers
especially with the recycling use of boxes..(which i caught from you!)thank you

you can also rearrange the pages
you can't do that with bound journals
