Free tutorial making easy mini junk journals

Been having fun making mini journals for my Etsy store.  I take small composition books that I get at the dollar store.  Then I reduce down my art works or vintage post cards and make lots of envelops and tags and add them to the journals to make them fun.  I make the covers with left over designer paper like Graphic 45.cat-journal-42-halloween-journalsdiva3journal-paris-4

The journals above with the flaps are attached with velcro dots or could be done with mini magnets.  I add a string or ribbon with beads to make the book marks.   I save some of the cards I receive and cut out the illustrations that I like.  The Paris embellishment on the  notebook above came from a card I received and just could not throw away.

These inexpensive journals would make an easy project for school children as well as a personalized notebook to keep in your purse or backpack.
