Altered Book For Unique Junk Journal Keepsake Gift Idea

Make a junk journal using a book that is altered makes a great gift idea for keeping a daily gratitude journal.

Watch this video of one of my past altered books that I sold in my Etsy shop, Markets Of Sunshine.

Do you have a book that has a beautiful cover that is just sitting on a shelf not being used?

Well turn it into a junk journal with a few simple steps.  It's a great project to do while sitting on the couch with one of your favorite shows running in the background.  

To get started pick out a good size book with lots of pages.  Then start removing half the pages.

You want to be able to embellish each page which will add bulk back to the book.

I usually tear out every other page.  In some cases you'll need to take out 3 or 4 pages at a time if it is a really thick book.

Then get out all of your craft supplies and start putting together a beautiful foundation of layers on each page.  Watch the video to get inspiration.

This will be a new product line coming to my shop for 2020.  So be sure to Favorite my shop so you can grab one of these works of art for yourself.
