Tiny Junk Journal

Hi Peeps!  Blog post number 2 for today! Woohoo! This is the other tiny junk journal I made for my partner Debbie.  These little books are addictive and so cute!!  This one I made a tutorial series, links will be at the bottom. 
The cover is made from a Celebrate It brand paper bag.  The patterned paper is from DCWV Butterfly Garden Stack.  I LOVE this paper!  It's cardstock actually, so it was great to add stability to the covers.  I added a button closure to the front which was really easy to do.  I just stitched in on just like you would a button on your clothing.  I stacked two buttons for this closure.  Seam binding is attached to the back cover which then comes around to the front and winds around the buttons. 
In the picture below, you can see I used doilies to highlight the opening of the pockets.  A tutorial on how to do this will be listed below. 
In the picture below, you see the top of my pockets have a semi circle punched in the middle.  This is for easy removal of the tags.  The doily is 4 inches in diameter and the semi circle was cut using a 1 3/8" circle punch.
The die cuts are from K & Company Julian collection.  Here you can see I used a coin envelope as well.  they make great little pockets.
In the picture below you see all the tags that are included in this junk journal.  I found a Definitions stamp set from Stampabilities and I stamped a different definition on the backs of all the tags.  I found this stamp set at Hobby Lobby but it is available on their website as well. 

All the tags have seam binding attached to them that I tea dyed and wrinkled.

Here are the four videos I recorded on this journal showing step by step how to make one.  Thank you for stopping by and visiting!
