What is a junk journal?:

A junk journal is a journal that is created using scraps from scrapbooking papers, found papers, playing cards, book pages, note pad papers....etc. and bonded into a ‘book’.

• There is a minimum rating requirement, of 4.9, I ask that you have no recent, unexplained 1’s, or 3’s- Please message me to explain if you feel you have been rated unfairly, etc.Those who flake will be banned permanently from future swaps I host!

• Please have a well filled out profile. There should be enough Info to scroll through. I will be checking profiles.

• Please make sure sturdy paper is used for the front and back cover and that covers are decorated.

• Pockets and tuck spaces, pocket pages, fold outs, fold ups, etc are great ideas you may choose to include. Personally, I love making pockets, so there’s room to hide lots of goodies.

• Bind with sewing, glue, rings, hole-punch or whatever method you prefer.

• Size of the journal, minimum- 4x6 and maximum size- sender’s choice.

• Please include 12+ pages, you can add more if you like.

• Theme is Senders Choice, but please take your partners profile info into account and avoid sending things they dislike.

You can use:

• Cardstock

• Printables

• large or small memo sheets

• any size of envelopes

• cards or postcards

• bingo cards

• wrapping paper

• sheets from stationary sets

• cellophane bags

• paper bags

Hi! I just saw this cool idea on youtube and I am wondering if this kind of journal would be acceptable for this swap? https://youtu.be/d9HlMCZPot4
