Junk Journal Finished

Finally got round to finishing up a last minute Christmas present. A personalised Junk Journal for a very lovely young woman. The cover was made from a biscuit box and that was then covered with an Avon bag.The papers used inside was a mix of what was left over from previous projects and I think it came together rather nicely. There are lots of little pockets, tuck spots and extra journaling card. Of course added some ribbon, twine and eyelash trim to the journaling tags for an extra bit of colour and frilliness. Also added little strips of washi here and there over the edges of a few pages. Hoping this gives you some inspiration to make one for yourself.
