Don't stress! There are LOTS of options! Below are a few images to help inspire your next junk journal cover.

This pretty Jane Austen journal has a lovely fabric cover. It's easier than you might think! Take a look at our tutorial here.
We tore the edges from some coffee-dyed and book pages papers, along with some sunflower ephemera. Then we mixed in some cheesecloth & lace to make this pretty cover.

This cover was an artistic endeavor! We used the following: Scraps of cardstock to make the "corset" along with fabric (frayed a bit) & lace
Collage Cover This pretty cover is layer upon layer of fussy cut images.
