So here is a crafty swap :)

You will be creating one junk journal/smash book for one partner. Also, add some loose small memo sheets and some sticker flakes for your partner to use in it.

You can use any size of envelopes, lots of different big and small memo sheets, sheets from letter sets, postcards, packaging from empty sticker sacks, packaging from deco tapes, any packaging from your goodies :) You can also create pockets with gluing (only around the edges and leaving the top open) 2 big memo sheets back to back. Also, use some sturdy paper for the front and back cover and decorate the front cover. Size of the journal, minimum 4x6 and maximum size 6x8. Add at least about 10-20sheets, you can add more if you like. Senders choice.

Be creative, if you are not sure what to use and got questions to leave a comment below. Also if you have other ideas about what to use, leave a comment also.

Binding options: Using a small binding machine like the zutter, or punching holes and adding rings, sewing, hot glue gun ...

What is a junk journal?: A junk journal is a journal that is created using scraps from scrapbooking papers, playing cards, book pages, note pad papers....etc. and bonded to a book.

Are we decorating the journal too, or just doing the base?

Unicorny 01/28/2020 #

Are there specific dimensions for this project? Or is it just any size?

Unicorny 01/28/2020 #

I see it now, somehow I missed that line all three times I read it

klover 01/29/2020 #

so just to confirm, 10-20 sheets equals one signature?

JBuchner 01/29/2020 #

Could I use a children’s book as the base for the journal as long as I add at least 20 pages?

So new to this....Here is what I got : We are making a junk journal that is a blank (artsyed up) for our partner to use/fill in. We do this by making decorative pages, attaching memo paper, pockets, etc. for our partner to write in, tuck things in the pockets and personalize. Am I on the right track? Questions: What are sticker flakes and one signature?

HennyPenny 02/ 1/2020 #

Looked up signature-group of folded pages-4 folded in half is what I saw.

@klover10 20 pages so it can be 10 but no more than 20 pages and it can be any kind of paper.

cmalaina 02/ 1/2020 #

@JBuchner Yes you can

cmalaina 02/ 1/2020 #

@HennyPenny Yes you are leaving the pages blank just putting all different pages so than can use it to decorate the way they want to do it. I am not even sure what sticker flakes are either
