This week I was working on a small Junk Journal sometimes
called a Travelers Notebook.
I saw a similar kit and realized I had many of the same pieces.
I cut a wood ruler to make a binding for my journal.
They will be attached with 2 , 1 1/4 '' bolts, 2 washers and 2 winged nuts.
I brought out some things to decorate my pages.
I love Tim Holtz embellishments, travel themed trinkets,
bits of vintage ephemera, tiny paperclips, washi tape and stickers.
My card stock was 5 3/4'' by 3 1/4 ''
I cut my pages and punched the holes.
I threaded the bolts through the back side of ruler piece.
Then added the pages starting from the back to the front.
I added index cards for travel notes and typed messages.
I found this cruise ship postcard with postmark from the 70's.
When you have all the pages added,
put the other piece of ruler on top.
Add washer and winged nut and tighten.
I scored the pages so they would fold easily.
I liked the way it looked standing on it's side.
I made pockets and fold outs with washi tape.
It would be easy to add more pages later if you like.
Are you making any plans ? Maybe a camping trip?
We plan to take a trip to the beach soon-
