I have a lot fun recycling junk mail into handmade paper and into tiny journals. Sometimes I will grind up the junk mail into pulp to make my own handmade paper, and other times I will recycle the paper as it is into something else.
The cover is made of leather and is hand stitched by me as well!
This 96 page tan/gray two-toned leather journal is approximately 1-1/8 in. W x 1-1/4 in. H and it is filled with reclaimed envelope paper that has been tea dyed. While many of the pages are blank, many are not (they’ve got the leftover envelope bits on them!) This one is unique in that different leathers were used and the entire book (cover and all) was tea dyed.
