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 40 page taupe (it’s tan, not gray) leather journal is approximately 1-3/8 in. W x 1-3/8 in. H and it is filled with white commercial paper. It is finished with beads on the spine (for bling!).
