Bullet journaling is my secret weapon to staying organised. If you don’t know what a Bullet journal is read this post ‘Why you NEED a bullet journal’
Today you are going to learn how to bind a junk journal. Creating junk journals has opened my eyes to the over looked things in daily life. I have found beauty and inspiration in these things and I hope you have found the same.
So you have your signatures and your cover now it’s time to bind them together. There are many ways to bind your junk journal this post will show you two easy ways. Firstly twine binding, this method doesn’t involve any sewing or glueing and is very simple to do. Then binding using the pamphlet stitch, this is my favourite way of binding and is very simple too.
- Your junk journal cover
Twine binding your junk journal is very simple. All it involves is wrapping twine around the centre of your junk journal cover and tying it off a particular way. The best way to learn this is via youtube and I find this video by Treasure books to be the most helpful and easy to follow.
Pamphlet Stitch Binding
The pamphlet stitch is a very easy stitch that I love. I love the way the spine looks when it’s complete and it makes my signatures very secure. Don’t get scared off by the supply list for this type of binding. Once you have done it the first time you will find that it is easy. The picture below is of the spine of my first junk journal bound with the pamphlet stitch.
- Waxed thread
- Bookbinding needle
- Bulldog clips
So that’s two easy methods for how to bind your junk journal that I really like. If those videos don’t gel with you though, you will have no problem finding other videos that show you how to bind your book.
