Japan Themed Junk Journal (SOLD)

Japanese style junk journal

I was so excited when my daughter came home on vacation from Japan and gifted me with so many awesome fabrics and stationery products to use in my junk journal making!!

I handcrafted this adorable, little journal using both fabric styles that she brought home and several gorgeous Origami papers scattered throughout.

I even included a few of the cutest little envelopes and cards, too!

Then I searched the internet high and low for just the right images to create the very special ephemera you will find nestled inside the pages of this very unique and one of a kind handcrafted blank book!
