French paper kit from Paris

One of the joys of traveling and pet sitting is going to places I have always wanted to see.  Last year , at the end of pet sitting we got to spend 6 days in Paris on our way home.  There are such charming and interesting flea markets in the city.  I found these remarkable French book pages and postage stamps there. Here are 2 of my travel journals that I used these papers to make.blueparis 3silverParis 4French paper kit 6I brought them home with me and have been using them to make my own travel and art journals but there are too many for me to use.  So I thought I would put together a kit of French papers and ephemera to share and sell in my Etsy shop.  French paper kit 1 Here is the kit and it is filled with over 22 pages of vintage French book pages and other items from my French collection.  I hope it will inspire my creative friends to add a flavor of Paris to their journals or work.French paper kit 2French paper kit 3French paper kit 7French paper kitIf you are interested in this kit please see my Etsy store : https://www.etsy.com/shop/LDphotography.    Here is the addy for this listing; https://www.etsy.com/listing/673084840/french-paper-kit-junk-journal-vintage?ref=shop_home_active_1

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.
