If you’d like to see an example of a wedding junk journal, then here’s a flip through and more info about one I made recently. I hope you find my blog and video full of inspiring junk journal ideas!

When I was first making the cover of my Shades of Winter junk journal (the one I made from sweet wrappers and lace), I made a few “mistakes” along the way.

Of course, there are no mistakes when making junk journals. Only happy accidents we can turn into something beautiful and functional.

In my case, my romantic wedding junk journal was born out of my winter project – and I’m officially in love with how it turned out.

If you’d like to see my journal in detail and hear more about the project, then here’s my wedding junk journal flip through video and the story behind how this journal came to be.

The closure is a piece of chiffon trimmed with gold. Underneath that is a layered fabric pocket I made out of different pieces of trim and beading. There’s a vintage wedding postcard inside the pocket.

The Inspiration & Story

As I mentioned, this wedding junk journal was born out of my previous project; my Shades of Winter junk journal.

When I was making the cover for that one out of sweet wrappers and lace, I thought I was going to line my cover with some sparkly felt covered with lace.

I soon realised this was going to make my journal cover far too bulky. So I changed my mind and lined the cover with beautiful scrapbook paper instead.

This meant the sparkly felt I’d planned to use was leftover.

When my husband saw it wrapped in the lace, he immediately said that it would be perfect for a wedding junk journal.

And that was it!

I found a beautiful digital junk journal kit to use (this one from Sweet Vintage Prints) and off I went to create my first wedding junk journal.

I made most of this journal and the ephemera inside on video. You can see my full playlist here.

The Verdict

Would I make a wedding junk journal again? Maybe.

While I loved making this wedding journal, it’s quite a niche type of junk journal, so I wouldn’t make them all the time. But every so often, I’d be very happy to make one here and there.
