Here is a video Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.
To make this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal I began with taking apart the bullet journal. This is where a Xacto knife comes in handy. When you locate the start of the signature it is easy to pull the book apart.
Next, take the staple out of the Dollar Tree Planner. Then cut the pages down the spine because this was a one signature book and the pages need to be broken up into a three signature book.
Composition book pages are sewn to the calendar side of the Happy Planner monthly tabs. The top and bottom are sewn down and that makes pockets on each page.
When printing the Calico Collage Dragonfly Delight pages I printed lines on the back side. Then use the handmade dragonfly stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the back side of the pages.
While the stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are out, apply to the bullet journal pages.
Use Distress Inks to stamp Dragonflies and quotes on the pages. I like how it adds another element to each page.
Acrylic paint was applied to the book pages with an old credit card. When the paint is spread thin with the card it allows the words to be faintly seen in the background. Stamp with Brutus Monroe Embossing ink and sprinkle with Brutus Monroe Gold embossing powder heat set.
These new painted book pages were then folded on one side then sewn with a zigzag stitch. Now, these are new pockets for the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.
Group the pages together. Paying attention to where the monthly tabs and the weekly planner pages fall in the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.
Once all the pages have been arranged it is time to attach the planner pages. Using Washi tape either attach to a journal page or to a corresponding planner page. These new pages will then rest in the journal and can be bound to the cover.
Making the cover is something I really enjoy. It makes me feel happy that this journal is almost complete. When the signatures are applied I will sometimes pet the journal. It makes me so happy.
As I sit and admire my journal it fills me with joy. This is MY Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. I get to use this for the next year. Hopefully, I will enjoy every day I get to write inside.
