Junk journal

Reusing music paper and napkins

I’ve been making some embellishments for junk journals, and here I’ve been working on envelopes.

I used music paper from a series of music books I got from an op-shop to make the envelopes.

Then I used a bunch of napkins in my stash. All of them except for three I got in happy mail from people all around the world.

I’m so glad because I live in a small country town and can’t find pretty napkins like these.

I always ask for blue birds, blue butterflies, and peacocks so I’m thankful for these treasures from people.

I love how the envelopes turned out. I made about 70. Yep, I do things in bulk.

Here’s a video I filmed of the envelopes if you want to know a bit more about the process and see them in more detail:

What do you think?

  1. They look very pretty JD. I make my embellishments in bulk too but not to the same extent….perhaps ten to twenty at a time…depends what it is. I love making them ❤ 🙂 😃

    1. Thank you so much! It’s so fun. I’m planning to make a whole stack of embellishments in bulk so they’re all ready to be used in journals. Next, I think I want to do altered paperclips.
