Not sure if you know this but the average adult gets 5 - 10 pieces of junk mail per day! That is a lot of trees just tossed in the garbage. Quite frankly, it makes me kind of sad. This junk mail journal is my small way of honoring those poor trees who gave up their lives so I could apply for another credit card that I don't need or want. Using junk mail is a fun way to teach kids about upcycling and repurposing. The shapes of the pages give an interesting jump start to your journal pages, too! Use what you have, my dear friends, and don't forget to Make Your Mark!
Add black and white graphic images!
