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...

Dress Up Your Labels

Embellish Labels If you are like me you have tons of labels. I just made a short video in the last post of ten things I could think of to do with labels other than just glue them.  One of the ideas I like best was to create mini tags. I can hang these in multiples on a large pin, add them to tags or attach them to lace or fabric on a page.  I chose my 451 French Vintage Labels for this project but any labels will do. I already have them in mini but since I wanted some even tinier...

Loaded Tag

Bookmark Corner I make corner bookmarks all the time as they are so versatile for pages and embellishment spots. In this instance I made one specifically to make a loaded tag and embellished it to the hilt being careful to highlight the beautiful flowers on my paper. I love this paper collection as even with surprise cuts I can still retain a focal point and use just one sheet to make many items. The corner bookmark is glued on the back for extra security but they will stay snugly on a journal page corner without glue. Including a tutorial from...
