It’s been on my mind lately to create a different kind of journal for myself that has lots of different kind of papers in it and is unique! So I created this easy small junk journal!! There are so many ways you can customize this and make it your own!
You can use this type of journal in so many ways!! You can add pictures, quotes, notes, memories, and of course writing your own journal entries! I enjoy writing on blank pages so I don’t mind that the paper I used for this is one sided designs. If you need more lined paper in your journaling you may consider adding more traditional paper to your journal as well!
You can use this as a regular journal or focus it on a specific topic, goal, or dream.

- Hole Punch
- Paper of your choosing, I used small scrapbook paper and small vintage papers from Hobby Lobby
- Book Ring
- Kraft Tex for Cover
First I took out all my small scrapbook paper and decided which pages I wanted on my journal! i narrowed it down and arranged my pages how I wanted them. I also wanted to add small pieces of paper throughout my journal so I also picked out which of those I wanted to add in.
Then I hole punched the pages in small sections. I just used one book ring so I made a hole at the top left hand corner of all the pages.
I love the variety of pages and that you can take out and add pages as you would like.
I used two pieces of brown Kraft tex paper for the cover. I trimmed the covers to fit the journal and then added them to the book ring.
Add the back cover first on the book ring, then your pages, then the front cover.
I love how this turned out!! I made mine pretty thick, but you can make it any size you want! I’m so excited to journal in my new junk journal!
Here are just some views of how the different pages look together!
Hope you give this a try!! Comment below with your favorite kind of DIY journals!
