JJJ: Let's Make A Junk Journal! #3

This a series and at the end, we will have created and filled a junk journal for ourselves, using the goodies and challenges from these swaps!

Create your junk journal. Any size, any papers you want. I suggest having at least 16 pages (at least 8 folded papers) Your pages should be as YOU like them. Various sizes are great but not at all necessary. Just the base (don't bind it yet as you may want to re-arrange the pages as we go along!) YOU WILL NOT BE SENDING YOUR JUNK JOURNAL. We will keep our junk journals and with each swap, we will add to them until at which point each page is done and we can start using them!

Once you create your book, we will begin filling it with various things we receive in these swaps! This Journal is just for these swaps! How fun is that!

3.These are PROFILE SPECIFIC SWAPS - You MUST post a little spot on your profile for these specific swaps - JJJ Let's Make a Junk Journal - So that your partner can reference that area when creating and sending things for these swaps.

FINALLY! Swap #3 - Let's gooooo! After viewing your partner's profile, you will create a flat, decorated belly band for them to use in their junk journal! The theme should reflect their profile preferences for their journal for the swap. (Youtube is a great place to find junk journal belly band tutorials. You may create any type of belly band you wish as long as you stay with your partner's theme.

Here are a few youtube tutorials to get your creative juices flowing!

Basic Belly Band for Junk Journal

Another one here

And one here too

Because these are PROFILE BASED SWAPSEVERYONE Needs to have a little section on their profile for these swaps. If you don't, I will have to delete you from the swap before partners are assigned. I will post a swap for this series every 2 weeks- the next one will be posted on August 15th (Or there around)

Have fun and hit me up with suggestions for swaps in this series! If you have a favorite technique, let me know by messaging me @ScrapHappyGabi

Don't forget - as with all swaps- please include a note or swap card with your swap bot ID and the name of the swap for easy identification and rating!

Do we need to know the size of our partner's journal? Or can this be smaller than the page to be glued to the page to put things in? I'm familiar with Junk journals but never made one before.

@artstamper My two cents: just be generous in size and it will be okay. If it's still to short for the recipients JJ they can add it to another background strip or add a bit of length on either side. In my case I have a variety of page sizes ;-) I hope this helps! Otherwise jus DM Gabi.
