Mini Summer Junk Journals

I have been spending some of my time crafting mini summer junk journals. I love the mini’s! They are so much fun to fashion. Measuring a tiny 3 1/2″ X 4″ is a sunshine yellow journal.

This mini was constructed using a cup of soup box for the cover. Then I layered the top with a thin sheet of quilt batting and then covered the front and back with yellow fabric using fabric – tac clue to secure it. The cover graphic is from ‘The Graphic Fairy’. I used a picture frame from the Tim Holtz collection. The color is a true gold although it photographed with a red hue.

There are 5 signatures and each is filled with 16 pages

This little book is packed with sweet summer themed ephemera

The second mini is slightly larger at 4″ X 5″. This one is a gift for a girlfriends birthday. I used a pasta box for the cover, batting and a darling summer fabric. I added a red ribbon tie and red button with lace to finish it off.

This one has 6 signatures and has 18 pages in each. I used 6 different seed packets for the cover of each signature.

I’ll share one more. I call this one the Mini Mini. It measures 2 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ with the pages extending out to 3 1/2″. I used a spaghetti box to build the cover. All of it’s pages are scraps of paper, paper bags, cloth, paper doilies, book pages, and lace bits.

It’s finally summer and I’ve been having lots of summer time fun!
