Make Boxed Journals from 12 x 12 cardstock

Hello everyone! Today we will look at using just one 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock to make adorable boxed journals! I know there are others who have made projects using just one sheet of paper but this is my take on it. Once I worked out how I wanted the folds to fall, the rest was smooth sailing.

These can be used as standalone journals stuffed with ephemera or gift cards or whatever you can fit in there. You can also use them in your journals like I did here on the back inside cover to act as a fold out / folio.

I had a lot of fun with this project. Below is the tutorial showing how I made it. I hope this serves as inspiration for you to make for your own journals.
