How to Create Your Sunflower Junk Journal

Creating your own sunflower junk journal with printed pages is a delightful project that allows for personal expression and creativity. Follow these easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions to assemble your very own sunflower-themed junk journal. For a more in-depth explanation, you can read this article on How to Make a Junk Journal for Beginners.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary supplies:

  • Printed sunflower junk journal pages
  • Art supplies (as listed above)
  • Cardstock for covers
  • Binding materials (thread, ribbon, or book rings)
  • A hole punch or awl

Step 2: Print Your Pages
Print your sunflower junk journal pages on high-quality paper. If you prefer a more vintage feel, you can print on tea-stained paper.

Step 3: Cut and Fold
Cut the printed pages to the desired size if necessary and fold them in half. Use a bone folder for a crisp fold line.

Step 4: Create Signatures
Group several folded pages together to create ‘signatures.’ A signature is a set of pages bound together within the journal. Typically, 4 to 5 folded pages per signature work well.

Step 5: Prepare the Cover
Cut your cardstock to size, ensuring it’s slightly larger than your folded pages. Decorate your cover using the art supplies mentioned earlier.

Step 6: Punch Holes for Binding
Align your signatures and cover, then punch holes along the fold line using your hole punch or awl. Make sure the holes are evenly spaced and match up in each signature and the cover.

Step 7: Bind Your Journal
Thread a needle with strong thread or ribbon, or use book rings to bind your journal. If you’re using thread or ribbon, start from the cover outside, leaving a tail for tying off later. Sew through the holes of your first signature, loop around the spine, and continue through the second signature, repeating this process until all signatures are securely attached. Finish by tying off the thread outside the spine with the initial tail.

Step 8: Decorate Your Pages
Now that your journal is assembled, it’s time to decorate. Use your stencils, Ohuhu markers, metallic gel pens, and other art supplies to embellish the pages. Add pockets, tuck spots, and tags for interactive elements.

Step 9: Add Ephemera and Personal Touches
Incorporate personal items such as photos, ticket stubs, pressed flowers, or any other memorabilia that fits the spring theme. Use adhesives to secure these in place.

Step 10: Use Your Journal
Your spring junk journal is now ready for use. Write down your thoughts, sketch, paste in new finds, and continue to decorate as you go along. This journal is a living document that will grow with you throughout the season.

Enjoy the process of creating and using your spring junk journal, and remember that there are no rules. It’s a personal and creative expression that is uniquely yours. Happy journaling!

  1. Thank you so much for these gorgeous journal pages. I was just wondering when reading your instructions ie. fold the papers in half. These look like 8.5 by 11 portrait pages are these to be used in a long travellers journal? I’m relatively new to making journals so would like to know. Thank you again!

    • Hi Linda, Welcome to the world of making journals! Well, there are several ways you can do this -you can fold it in half to make a long travellers journal, but what I like to do is lay out two pages on a single A4 page when printing. (I would lay them out on a landcape A4 page). Then once printed I can fold them in half so both halves have the same design on them. Alternatively you can mix and match and print out a single page on A4 and then cut them up to build new pages. This all really depends on what type of journal you intend to make. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to Junk Journaling. Hope this helps!
