1934 Vintage Salad Book Junk Journal
This journal started out as an old salad book from 1934 and the outside of the book was in perfect shape so I left it intact but added a paper collage to the front cover for decoration. The inside was gutted with the spine still intact but I reinforced it anyway for added strength and covered the spine with some purple grapes fabric with wonderful green leaves all over. It matched the beauty of the original cover so that’s what I went with. This one measures 10 1/4 inches in height by 6 3/4 inches in with with a 2 inch wide spine. Inside are 3 signatures with assorted papers added. I included an envelope filled with assorted images that you can use to decorate this journal with. On some of the pages I sewed on strips of ruffled vintage fabric strips as decoration. There is plenty of writing space in the junk journal if that’s what you want to use it for, but it can also be used as a glue book too.
