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.
