I have been collecting clippings from magazines for years. I cut out words and letters all the time. I also cut out interesting pictures of anything that might work for me later on. Of course, I cut out flower and landscape pics as well. I do this for the purpose of creating journal pages and customizing binders.
This one is for my perennials. I haven't added anything inside yet but plan to keep my plant maps, plant lists, culture info, and yearly notes inside.
I already have an iris binder and plan to create a vegetable binder and shade garden binder soon.
It's a lot of fun to put these together. I use BHG magazine often for this. I suggest you give it a try for a fun way to decorate your garden binders.
