Junk journal

Making vintage ephemera

I’ve been wanting to make my own ephemera for a while but since I’d never done it before, I delayed.

I just had to watch enough YouTube videos for inspiration and then I gave it a go.

I had some tags that I cut out and coffee-dyed so I used them to start with. I collaged them so they had a back and front and so that at least one side had space to journal on.

Some of the tags also have pockets with an extra journaling card tucked in.

I also had some coffee-dyed envelopes so I decorated them with some scraps.

Very basic but adds a little interest to them. Especially since I usually just stick in plain envelopes.

I love using envelopes as flaps in junk journals so people can put their own journaling cards, letters, or ephemera in them.

Then I created some journaling with a Tim Holtz ephemera pack.

I can use these to tuck into pockets in junk journals and you simply journal on the back of them.

I used mostly TIm Holtz products for this set of vintage ephemera.

Now I’ll have to make some vintage junk journals so I can use it all.
