Junk journals are great to make and to give as gifts. There are videos on the internet that show how to put together a junk journal. I fell in love with them on first sight. This craft is the beginning of a junk journal which is made out of envelopes.
Total Time: 15 minutes
It is best to just start with 2 envelopes. Open the flaps, which are the triangle part of the envelope.
Tuck one of the triangle flaps into the opening of the other enveope.
I glue the flap into the other envelope.
Keep on putting as many other envelopes together, by sliding one triangle flap into the opening of any other envelope.
I did a small journal which I already had all the supplies, but there are tons of crafters who gi to great lengths to make their journals elaborate, and fancy.
I love to do journals of every kind, and this includes already put together journals from the dollar stores, journals made completely from junk mail, hournals made from empty CD cases, the list could go on forever;)
Love this idea! It would be even better if you could use the envelopes from all the junk mail you receive!
It's a great craft, but can you please explain how to put together the envelopes, using more detail and pictures. I just don't understand where the pieces go - I mean, I really don't get it LOL.
I feel it is a waste of time for the end result.
