Junk Journal Page: Harry Potter from a magazine!

While making the junk journals for my grand daughters as a Christmas gift, I am working on expanding my pages to include other things, besides those made with paper as well as things/themes my grand daughters like.  The second oldest GD is 10 and she told me she loved the Harry Potter movies and books.  So in looking through a magazine, I saw this ad for  a Harry Potter movie and thought.... "how perfect!". I can put in her journal what she likes as well as satisfy my efforts to use "other" supplies in my junk journals.

The pages are tea stained, 8x10. So the ad was smaller than that. So I folded it in half and used double sided sticky tape across the top and bottom of the ad....and stuck it to the tea stained paper, matching center folds. Then on each side, I used a circle punch and punched the half circles, indicating a pocket slide. The two brown pieces to each side are journaling cards....a decorative (with a little glitter!) front and blank on the back for writing on! This is also the center of the signature, so the whole ad will be seen, just like this, when she gets to this page in her journal!

I don't know anything about Harry Potter, but she does and I know the smiles are going to shine when she sees this! I hope (and will suggest!) that she use the journaling cards and write about which her favorite Harry Potter book/movie (I know there have been several!) was or if she had any imaginary thoughts about her doing anything in the stories that she thought was cool...maybe she imagined herself a wizard and could do what he does! I will encourage her to write about it, so in years down the road...she will have those memories to bring her happy thoughts!

You can do this same thing with any theme...if you just see a pretty picture in a magazine or a place you'd like to go or even something cute, funny or something you'd like to have...I saw one that I wish I'd kept...it was the prettiest watch I have ever seen! Granted it was couple thousand dollars..and I wouldn't NEVER spend that much on a watch  even if I had it, but...the watch was pretty and I wish I'd thought to keep the page!

Check your magazines! They are full of things you might like to include in your junk journal!


 Thanks for stopping by and...keep on sewing those memories!
