Flyouts for Junk Journal Pages

Flyouts for junk journal pages are added to existing pages in a junk journal. These are glued to a side edge, a top edge or glued down on the journal page.

What is a flyout?

The technical term is a tipped-in page , although the method for attaching these is specific. Whereas, you can be as creative as you like with a flyout.

In your junk journal, anywhere you’d like extra pages, you can attach more after the book is made. Because they ‘fly’ out of the existing junk journal pages, you attach them in any spot you like.

Flyouts for junk journal pages can be as simple as a piece of paper folded and glued to a page. The paper unfolds to reveal more writing space.

Side edge flyout

Washi tape attaches this flyout to the outside edge of a journal page. Because washi tape is not permanent, add some additional glue.

Different glued in flyout

I made an envelope, but didn’t glue it together. Once attached to the page, a unique flyout!

Top or bottom edge flyout

Another way to attach a flyout in a junk journal is to the top or bottom of an existing page. The paper opens out so you can use it to add more writing or pictures to your junk journal.

I have had many careers in my 70+ years, but always creativity was at the forefront. I am passionate about using less and wasting less. I love design, painting, decorating, and now I am combining all that into making junk journals. Creating is like breathing for me!
