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.

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.
