Another Fun day Junk Journaling + collage cover

This junk journal is 6 x 9 inches and has 52 pages (104 front and back). Most pages are coffee dyed. The musical sheets are from a song book dated 1970. This is available now at my Etsy shop. Please check out the flip through video below. This journal took me longer to finish because I had to make a collage for the cover.

I used a paper bag and collage it with tissue papers and scrapbook papers.

Handy Dandy Junk Journal

I am having so much fun creating junk journals. This journal measures 3 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches and cuter in person. I also included a flip through video and I apologize if the video is blurry. I just couldn’t figure it out why after I uploaded it to youtube it ended up blurry. I’m still new to making youtube videos so I really appreciate any suggestions on how to fix blurry youtube videos. I use my iPhone for recording videos and iMovie for editing. So if you guys are expert on making youtube videos, I am open to any suggestions. Well anyway, this journal is already available in my Etsy shop.

Here is the flip through video.

Handmade Junk Journal

My very first junk journal. Did a lot of stitching to each page to add interest. There are three signatures and I stitched them to the spine instead of using glue or double-sided tape. Tried double-sided tape before but when the weather gets too cold, the tape came off and everything fell apart. I also used fabric for the cover. I’ve seen a lot of crafters using double-sided tape to put pages together or even for binding and it works for them. But when I tried using tape it doesn’t work and it’s not strong enough to hold everything together. So I am still searching for best glue or tape for bookbinding because I want to try to create a journal that I don’t have to do any stitching.
