Today I’m sharing a Flip Through of Accordion Fold Junk Journal made over the past couple of weeks on my YouTube Live sessions. I was inspired to make this Accordion Fold style journal because I had an abundance of left over items I wanted to use up. Since I’ve not done a large accordion fold journal I thought it would be a fresh take on creating a junk journal.

This accordion fold journal was a lot of fun to create. I loved being able to blend different digital kits along with scrapbook paper, book pages and more.
On the cover is a pocket that holds handmade paper, that I made. A group of ladies came for a workshop and I taught them how to make paper. As a result I was able to make about 50 sheets to use in my journal projects.
Combining Scrapbook paper, with digital images and stamped images brings me joy. I love blending all of these together. Since I used so many different kits and left over bits, it gives this journal a very eclectic feel but at the same time it all goes together.
Even coloring book pages can make a great page in a junk journal. Here I used the coloring book page as a pocket.
The Paper Sack Envelope Pocket adds a pop of color. Cardstock was used for a journal card and stamped with the Bella Rose med. On the right side I decided to use white embossing powder with the Corner Roses Stamp. I love how the image is peaking out behind the butterfly lg stamp.
A tip in page is a great way to add a page to a journal. It can be added anywhere you like. This page is also a pocket at the top.
If you are like me you might have a stash of stickers. It was fun using up some of those stickers in this journal. Stamping words like Love and Always Dream Big is a great way to use up scraps of paper.
The back cover of the journal isn’t the end. When it is flipped over the journal continues!
Wallpaper sample books are a great way to get unique papers for a junk journal. I love the colors and textures that can be found in wallpaper. (note you will have to use a glue that will stick to plastic if gluing on top of wallpaper.)
Altering a garment tag with scrapbook paper and a tear off notepad paper is a lot of fun. Notes was stamped on a scrap of paper and added to handmade paper to create a tag.
And then the book comes back to the beginning so you can start all over again.
