Feeling inspired after watching PinkMonarchPrint’s Youtube video, I created my very own junk journal ephemera folio out of envelopes.

It’s got lace. It’s got multiple pockets and flip-outs. And it’s got a lot of pink!

Scroll down to watch my flip through video and see some photos of how it looks and what’s inside. I hope it serves as ample junk journal inspiration for you!

The Inspiration

As I was very new to junk journaling at the time, I didn’t quite feel ready to make a full-blown junk journal yet – or have to bind one!

So I started small.

I started making various ephemera at first and then I saw this Youtube video by PinkMonarchPrints for an ephemera folio that had lots of interesting flip-outs using envelopes.

So I decided to make one of my own!

I used an A4-sized manila envelope as my base, folded it in half and then started arranging my other envelopes where I wanted them.

The rest was easy as it was just adding embellishments and deciding what ephemera to include in the folio.

I just love how “shabby chic-esque” it looks, and in my opinion, you can never have too much pink!

The Verdict

Would I make this junk journal ephemera folio again?

Gladly. I really enjoyed making it and piecing together the puzzle of where to put the envelopes. Plus you can fit a surprising amount inside it!
