Vintage Style Embellishments For Your Journals and Other Creations

Need inspiration on your next embellishments for your junk journal cover, box or any other vintage styled creation? Then take a look at these projects I wanted to share with you.

I am working on several creations and projects during July and needed some embellishments to go with the theme so to say.

So here's a couple of paperclips and some super elegant and very easy paper wheel embellishments that just take a lot of preparations then you're good to go.

I hope you will take a look at the video where I show you how I did the embellies.

You'll need paper flowers, punched or cut (fussy cut or from a template) in different sizes.

Paper clips, big or small.

Distress inks. I used Tim Holtz Vintage velvet and Antique Linen


Ribbon, twine and maybe some buttons.

I use wet craft glue, also to give the ephemera an enhanced cover ala decoupage, so that they get stiffened and can withstand a touch or two.

Scissors of different sizes, holepunch, flowerpunch, hot glue gun.

If you have any questions or would like to comment, please feel free to.

Thank you for watching! I hope you enjoyed this inspirational post

I love your beautiful and creative embellishments! It shows how much more we can make without having to buy something for everything - and love the use of the wine corks! Thankfully, I have very similar flower punches and now know how much more useful they can be. Thanks for sharing!
