Christmas Junk Journal with File Folder Cover

by Rachel JazzyCreations
(United States)

Happy Monday! Thank you for stopping by! This is my latest junk journal. The cover is made from heavy duty file folder and I sewed around the perimeter with a beige thread. It has gusseted pockets on the inside front and back covers. The journal measures 11" x 5". Quite a tall and narrow journal, was super fun to make!

There are 3 sewn in signatures which measure 11" x 4.25". Perfect for adding 4x6" photos or a few smaller photos per page.

The front cover has an image from Ephemera's Vintage Garden. The kit is called Yuletide Roses. I framed the image with some silver toned bling.

I used a lovely red gingham ribbon with crochet ruffled trim. This ribbon is on both the front and back covers. The paper line I used is from K&Company. The closure is a red satin ribbon that can be found in my etsy shop here

Here is what it looks like completely open (see images). Once it is filled with photos, it can be displayed this way during the Christmas season!

If you'd like to see a walk through of this journal cover to cover, here is the video.

Other supplies that I used are:

Green leaf trim

Burgundy leaf trim

Red pompom trim

Green pompom trim

Coffee dyed tickets

These are all available in my Etsy shoppe!

How many pages...
by: Rachel Jazzy Creations

Awe lolol, thank you soooo much! I think it was 9 per signature. I can't count them because I don't have the journal anymore lol. But I'm pretty sure it was 9. :)
Thank you for commenting!

I am at work and while I can watch the video, I can not listen to it! The JJ was fab --

Just one question -- about how many pages are in each signature?

Keep up the good work! :)
