Quarter Page Sized Tan Recycled Leather and Recycled Hand Torn Paper Refillable Portable Journal

98 Pages of hand torn paper. Chicago Screw Binding so you can tear, punch and refill with your own scrap paper once you fill up the pages I put in for you.

When I first started selling online, I opted not to get a separate printer for doing shipping labels. I also elected not to purchase self adhesive labels for two reasons. The first is that ink jet ink runs when it gets wet, and so even with the self stick labels, I would still have had to lay tape over top to prevent moisture (like say a rainy day when the mail carrier had my package out for delivery) Self-stick is simply overkill when you are also taping.

The second reason is the full on waste of the backing paper on which self stick printable label blanks come mounted.

So, I consciously decided that I would use plain printer paper. But this still left me with the problem of paper waste whenever I need to print only a single label or an odd number of labels. In each case, the label only takes up half of the 8.5 x 11 paper. And after folding the sheet and tearing off the remainder each time, I began to grow a pile of half page sized paper waste.

I wanted to use that paper, and as I'm a creative sort just keeping a pile of scratch paper on hand wasn't very satisfying. Recently I remembered that I used to keep a hand written journal and that I often, when short on cash, but long on excess paper left over from college, would use a hole punch, some random ribbon, or even rubber bands to cobble together makeshift journals to carry with me.

And then I remembered the stash of leather scraps hanging out amidst my sewing things.

It came to me, that I could recycle the leather, originally from a vintage leather mini-skirt, and make a simple journal with hand-torn pages, Chicago screws so the fill paper can be replaced with more hand torn pages as needed. and a simple loop to stash a pen marker with your journal.
