Junk journal swap :0)

generally made out of old books junk journals are sweet little books using "junk" or paper and scraps that are hanging around.

this swap is themed "April showers brings May flowers" please keep to the theme with your own touch/twist.

nothing smaller than 4 by 6 cover feel free to make it larger. One or more signatures, each signature should contain a minimum of five pages, making the signature ten pages in the book. A signature is a grouping of papers gathered together and folded in half to make one section in a book. These pages can have pockets, be decorated with embellishments or pictures, can be left blank for journal spaces. The embellishments can be sewn or stapled or glued on. here are a couple tutorials on youtube for ideas :0)

Any binding requirements? Must it be sewn? Or can binder rings be used? Thanks!

Sugardragon 04/21/2016 #

Hello Skinny52; I want to leave it open to preference for the binding so make how you prefer.

I would also like to add that, Yes this is most definitely a whole book. My idea was to have a little bit of decorations and maybe a few tags and such, but leave room for journaling and usage. :0)

What about adding minimum amount of pages? One signature can be loosely interpreted...just a thought

Sugardragon 05/ 6/2016 #

Thanks craftwiz... good idea.

please explain "signature page/s".....the number of pages in the journal for writing??

Thanks for your comment/question, i edited the swap to include the details you are looking for :0)

Thanks so much, Sugardragon, for all the extra info sources...just wasn't familiar with "signature papers" term...even though I've been making them ☺. So much to know and enjoy! 😍
