Mini Junk Journal Organizer
I am doing another swap on Mini Album Scraps, and this is the result of my efforts!
We were supposed to create a mini organizer, that uses 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" pages, has 4 dividers, and a minimum of 50 pages (which includes dividers, pockets, etc). The base colors are supposed to be neutral (black, brown, off white, white) and our partner picks an "accent" color we are to use for the book. We were also not to use a lot of embellishments, unless they were paper, so that the book would be flat and easily fit into a purse without damage.
Valentina, from Quebec, is my partner. She said she loves vintage, pastel, cream and teal. She also likes flowers and fairies. This is what I came up with.
Inside the front and back cover I used a coin envelope and stamped 2 tags to go in them. I made 4 dividers and tabs so she can write whatever she wants on them. I also covered 4 binder clips with coordinating papers, and put one on each divider.
This is hard to see, but the black page is a pocket page...
One side is empty, but the other has a library card with a punched butterfly. I put 10 pages of plain paper in each section, and stamped the front of them with something. Some are word stamps, some are flowers, some are flourishes...
In between the 10 pages I put one card that I covered with paper on the back.
I also have large tags that I folded up, secured with decorative paper tape, and created pockets for two tags. I inked hole reinforcers to use for them as well.
Each of these tags are stamped on the back. Oh, I also inked all of the pages except for the plain ones.
The back of the tag page, and the next divider.
This pocket page is different in that I added another piece of paper inside of the fold to create a second pocket. I did this with 2 of the 4 pocket pages I made.
These tags are in these double pocket pages, and I put some on the other side as well.
Thanks for looking, and wish me luck, I sure hope Valentina likes it!
