My first fabric journal finished!!!

This is the front cover of my first fabric journal. I've put a pencil beside it to give an idea of size (thanks Mum for the suggestion.The binding
And here it is with postcards in it. It holds 20 cards - there a few gaps and already it's bulging.

EDITED: They were stored in a box which meant they were rarely seen. Of course I'll need to do another or something similar to accomodate the cards I've been receiving lately from another exchange. I've been contemplating something concertina fashion that could be hung or displayed on a shelf but that one needs a bit more planning

I'm one of your group 15 -collectincat- and I love this idea. I have been trying to decide a good way to protect this miniature art museum coming in my mail---and yet still show anyone wanting to look. Can you tell me a little more detail on how the card fits into the page? I need pics to understand nowadays...LOL
