Berry Basket Perpetual Journal

When I first saw pictures of berry basket perpetual journals on Design Sponge I immediately thought of friends of mine who would suit such a gift.


Berry baskets aren't the easiest thing to find in the winter and I was worried about their longevity so I got the ceramic berry baskets from Anthropologie. I fell so in love with them that I've since bought three and I have them out on a little side table with my Project Life journal cards and what-nots.


The instructions said to cut index cards in half, but our Office Depot had packs of halved index cards and it was only a few cents more... like four cents more. Saved me a bundle of time too.


For the month dividers I used manilla tags, cut down to fit, and I topped them with flat embellishments like stamping, paint, music paper and a little bit of the "Art to Borrow" sheets you get in Stampington publications




It was nice having so much baker's twine in my Brown Paper Packages Kit - I wrapped all sorts of gifts and still had enough for this project.
