Using Everyday Items
Another lesson from #junkjournaljuly
The prompt that stumped me this week was “fold-out”. I turned to Instagram but the posts looked a little too designer-ish.
With my current stash, I don’t have “designer-ish”. I don’t have a lot of fancy things. However, I remembered that a junk journal is for found materials and the stuff we encounter every day. So why not use things like the heavy-duty paper from a sticker pack folded in 3 as a writing spot? Why not use notecards joined together by washi tape and stickers as a little writing book?
While it may differ from most who use those brand items, it’s unique and quirky. Also, it reduces things being thrown out. It saves money for a future shopping trip and asks the question “is this worth spending on?”
