Mini Junk Journal with Pooh

Happy Friday! It's Julissa of Paper Gems by Jules and today I'm trying something totally new and out of my element... a mini junk journal. I was chatting with Noelle Blackman-Reese (another Unity DT Member) and she was sharing how much she loves making junk journals. So I dove into the deep end of YouTube and found more inspiration. Then, as luck would have it, I got got happy mail! My latest Unity order:



So I started with the adorable Vintage Forest Charm Paper Pack. The paper seemed to already have some split patterns that totally made sense for a little junk journal. So the first thing I picked was the cover page and looked for the middle. Here's a layout of how I scored the cover page.



Now we've got a cover! Let's fill it. Using the same paper pack, I picked out more of the sheets that were formatted with two sides that could split evenly in the book. In order to fit these pages into the cover, I had to trim the sheet down to 5.5" wide. See example below.



So now that you have all your pages trimmed, let's build our mini junk journal! I used four sheets for the interior. If you choose to make more, you may need to rethink the cover size to fit them accordingly. From here, you'll adhere the white side of each page to each other creating a book. Once you've created the book, you can decorate it with more paper, stamps and that beautiful Limited Edition Winnie the Pooh Ephemera. This where anything works!



So I kind of made a mistake, but it's art... so we just go with it. When adding the ribbon, I probably should have glued it between the cover and the first page, but I forgot. Using tearable tape, I adhered the ribbon and used this sweet ephemera to cover the edge. You'll see I did the same on the last page as well.



You'll see I used more ephemera to cover the ribbon. This ephemera is just so adorable.






And for the back cover, I used a my latest Magnuson Custom Stamp featuring, none other than, Winnie the Pooh!



Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you found inspiration. If you happen to make a junk journal inspired by this blog... please share it on the Unity {show & tell} Facebook page and tag me!


Until next time... Happy Crafting!
