10 Books to Get You Started with Making and Using a Junk Journal

Posted on June 20, 2024

As a child, I have always enjoyed a journal of mine to write or collage in. Now that I am an adult, I have discovered that anyone can make a journal from old books and paper ephemera lying around the home. In a world that promotes reusing old materials, why not create your own custom book made of these kinds of papers? You can get your craft on and fill the pages with your works of art or if you don’t feel very artistic you can journal on the pages instead. Some of these books are about how to make a junk journal while others are about how you can be creative with the pages of your new junk journal. While books are helpful, I also recommend watching YouTube tutorials to help you gain further knowledge about all things related to junk journaling.

Check out these books to learn how making your own journals is a fun way for you to get your hands busy and create your personal space. The best part is you are recycling old and unused books and papers. Stay creative!
