An interesting name! When a strip of cardstock is attached top and bottom to a page inside a junk journal, you have a belly band.
Scrap patterned papers and a die cut decorate a strip of cardstock. This band acts like a belt across the ‘belly’ of the page. Insert notes, ephemera, or booklets under the band.
It is so easy to write short items or sayings on journal cards. No long stories to pen, just quick notes to jot on the back.
Cardstock or thickish patterned papers are best for journalling cards. Rounded corners are common, sometimes fancy rounded corners. Handmade or purchased, these cards are great.
I love making tags! Cut up pretty boxes into tags. Punch a hole in it. Round the top corners and tie a cord or ribbon. You can buy luggage or price tags to decorate.
A tag in a junk journal is a decorated parcel tag with string or ribbon attached. It may have space for journalling on the reverse.
The tags in the picture are handmade from card stock and sturdy scrapbook paper. I trimmed them with a corner rounder.
