Junk journal

Latest junk journal made from a paper bag

This is my latest personal junk journal. I was inspired to make it when I saw a fellow journaler create one to record her journaling ideas and happy mail.

I’m going to use mine to record the journals I make, inspiration, people to send happy mail to, craft items to buy, etc.

I started by going through my craft supplies and gathering anything blue or vintage.

I made this journal out of a paper bag, also inspired by a fellow journaler who made such a beautiful journal.

Who knew a paper bag could turn into something so amazing.

I decorated the cover with some journal cards I got from happy mail and I love that I can store the leftover ones in the opening of the bag on the cover.

I included scrapbook paper, papers I got from happy mail, note paper, and other random papers.

The aim was to have as much writing space as possible.

I also embellished the pages to add interest and so I don’t have to decorate later; I can just concentrate on writing.

Some of the embellishments I made and were inspired by fellow junk journalers.

Love this journal!

Here are the videos that inspired it.
