I’ve written before about the wonders of Junk Journals. This is yet another installment of the same topic. The past few hours I’ve spent making tags, pockets, and envelopes for my journals while I wait for the outside cover of my current one. I’ve created some cool items to add to the journals and they are well worth the time. I do believe I’ll be posting a pic or two if I can figure out how to add them to the actual post. If not I’ll add one to the article title if nothing else.
As you can see these funky little journals can be made to order for absolutely anyone. You can go crazy with all that you add to it or what you use to make them. I’ve made tags for them which go in the pockets. Pockets to put tags and collectables in and envelopes for things like private thoughts, journaling pages, photos, or keepsakes. As much as the things you create for your journal, What the recipient adds can be just as creative and thoughtful. They are so fun to work with and even more fun to fill up as you please.
I love love love making these things. I continue to encourage you to create your own or buy one to check out if you like them as much as I do. I honestly believe if you buy one you WILL start making them. There are so many videos on YouTube that teach you the in’s and out’s of their creation but I have to warn you it can be overwhelming. The final projects look amazing and when the person goes too quickly you get lost in the process. Watch tons of videos. Watch videos with multiple parts. Watch subject based videos. It all comes together and you will be making them in no time.
