Junk Journal Tutorials
For Beginners

The two tutorials below cover some basics to get you started. Topics include:

  • how to gut a hardcover book
  • papers and other 'junk' supplies
  • printing tips (for digis)
  • tools
  • binding techniques

1) File Folder Junk Journal

This junk journal tutorial shows how to create a simple journal with a file folder and assorted paper. It also includes instructions for adding an easy elastic closure.

You can include 6 to 12 sheets in the signature. Remember that adding embellishments will also add bulk to your finished journal.

(The printable kit featured in this video is Vintage Queen Bee.)


The coffee stained page is available here. To learn more about the paper I use to print digis, please check out the printables page.


2) Hardcover Junk Journal

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to gut a hardcover book, what types of pages and 'junk' you can add, and how to create a hidden inside spine so that the signature threads aren't visible from the outside.
