What is a Junk Journal?

A junk journal is a totally unique handmade book made from recycled items.

By using papers from magazines, brochures, patterned paper, sheet music, envelopes, packaging, brown paper bags, maps, greeting cards, post cards, doilies etc., your junk journal provides interesting backgrounds for your writing, art or memorabilia. Pockets are usually added, too.

Junk journal covers can be made from any type of cardboard. Cereal boxes, old book covers or any plain cardboard can be decorated and recycled into beautiful art works. Often the covers are closed with bead charms and other fancy fastenings.

Using a junk journal is like keeping a diary but you can include graphics, photographs, memorabilia and keepsake items. It's an informal way to document your thoughts, memories, an occasion or an event that has touched you. It may tell a whole story or just record ad hoc moments in your life.

Use your junk journal as an art journal, scrapbook or Smash Book. They're so much fun and you make the rules!
