File Folder Junk Journal - New Listing Later Today! - Photo Heavy Post!

Hi Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I wanted to share my newest journal with you made from a file folder (as the cover), with coffee dyed paper, scrapbook paper, and digital images from Ephemera's Vintage Garden.  You can find the set I used here.
This Journal is 5-3/4" inches wide and 8-1/2 inches tall, with a 1-1/2" spine.  It has 90 pages counting front and back sides.  There is a lot of room for journaling, adding memorabilia and photos.  The spine is covered with chocolate brown duct tape.  I used hand dyed seam binding on the spine, crocheted trim along the spine, and a gorgeous image from the Mushrooms and Birds ATC Set.  

 The closure is an elastic band that goes around a double layered button.  

In the photo below, there is a pocket on the inside front cover.  

There are several tuck spots through this journal.  The photo below shows a corner pocket I created with layers of hand dyed elements; book page, parchment paper, doily and banner.  All of the tuck spots have been sewn along the edges.

Pictured below is the center of the first signature.  There is a large pocket on the right page, and 3 small paper sacks with tags on the left page.
Here are the tags on that page.

 Pictured below, is the second set of paper sacks included in this journal.

 Pictured below, is the 3rd set of paper sacks included in this journal.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  This journal will be listed in my Etsy shop later today, so keep an eye out for that if you're interested!  There will also be a video today as well.  Have a wonderful Friday!
