Re-purpose, Recycle And Re-use

House Cleaning I think 80% of paper crafting involves house cleaning of some sort and these combined posts and projects have been no exception. These embellishments actually began with the hope that I could quickly make some paper embellishments that resembled polymer clay charms as shown in a previous post. It was almost an epic fail aside from the frames but I didn’t want to throw all that work away so I came up with these little pieces.   I didn’t think too much of it but since I am way behind on my intended group participation I took a few...

Old Jewelry

Inspiration - Gatherings Old Jewelry I like to create my own ephemera as often as I can instead of buying pre-made items. My Pinterest board  Pretty Little Paper Crafts is filled with many random things, many of them not made with paper. That’s because when I see something with a wow factor my first thought is how can I translate that using paper. When I succeed I often find a new paper project that will keep me stocked up on ephemera and bonus…. more ideas usually flow.    These paper jewelry pieces were inspired by wearable art jewelry pieces or faux...

Junk Journal Ephemera – Paper Fans

Make Your Own Ephemera Webster’s Dictionary defines ephemera as something of no lasting significance. I have the same popular ephemera collections as most paper crafters but I also like to design my own ephemera.  This little paper project has been in my ephemera box for quite a while and I finally got around to making more than one to share and creating a video post as well. The photo below inspired me to try to create a paper fan as an ephemera piece and it brought back a memory of a fan necklace charm that I still have that is almost...

Collage Your Labels

A different motif There are a lot of different things you can do with labels as shown in previous posts.  Here, I demonstrate just one way to collage with labels from that first post.  I’ve done this before for a masculine gift card tag and with many different types of labels and stamps. Since the idea seemed a natural for using Tim Holtz paper dolls at first I thought that is what I would do but then I decided to use some Tim Holtz tissue paper instead. I also chose to use the tonal sets from 273 Vintage Labels rather than the...
