Junk Journal Using Up Book Pages Ep 60 Single Envelope 3 Fun Ideas! The Paper Outpost !! :)

Junk Journal Using Up Book Pages Ep 60  Single Envelope 3 Fun Ideas! The Paper Outpost !! :)
hi everybody this is Pam and today we are having some fun making three things from one

envelope

that's right three things from one

envelope

and this is a little challenge that I did on the Face

book

group and you guys came up with some amazing

ideas

and I want to go ahead and give this a go myself so I made this today and this is what I came up with so let me give you a little tour of what's what's here okay so first of all the first thing is yes a pocket I basically cut my

envelope

junk journal using up book pages ep 60 single envelope 3 fun ideas the paper outpost
here and here okay so the bottom part I made a pocket out of there's the pocket okay very simple and I can just glue this pocket right on to a

journal

page and I am ready to go I just put a little tag in here and decorated her up on the front with some cheesecloth and cotton and leaf skeleton some purplish Stickles and a applique that I got from Aliexpress don't know the seller but it's somewhere on Aliexpress you can buy appliques and what else then oh no then I made a what I'm
calling this is a library card pocket so you know these were sticked it sticked these were stuck in the back of library

book

s and the card went in here the returned you know the one you got in trouble and you started accumulating a nickel a day oh that used to scare me when I was little oh my god I oh and Nicole I'm late get over there so anyway you can make a library card pocket for your

journal

s and you can stick that down or you can make it a removable and I made this one designed to be a
removable because I put a little cutie poo on the back okay and there's that little guy very easy to make and this guy I call the money wrap and you remember you remember when you have all those hundred dollar bills wrapped in a band or the money band how about that the money band just because it's a band it's a band that goes around something and the something I decided to put in here were these some things are writing

paper

stationery

paper

s and so they just slide in and out you
can remove them the person can

journal

on but it can also slide them back in for storage and you can clip this whole shebang right into onto a page in your

journal

or you could glue the back of this down so they could slide things in and out so it's almost it's like a belly band that's wrapped all the way around something so it can house ephemera can house post cards it could house photographs it could house you know blank

pages

for somebody to write on stationery ephemera old
ephemera so I'm in a million

ideas

so let's get to it you want to make these little guys they're lots of fun and it only takes one

envelope

and a pile of other stuff of course okay so let's just move these aside oops stuck my finger in it yep sure did got the Stickles on me wasn't dry yet again that's just another day in the craft room for me miss tickles all over the place okay moving number three over here in the safety zone okay there we go all right and I just put
this

paper

here so you can see the stuff and here's my beautiful messy craft cutting mat which is well used well-loved and that's just the way it is okay so we have an

envelope

and we're gonna do something to this

envelope

so let's cut it and I have a pair of scissors okay I'll use these because I can't find the other ones right now these are you know these very fancy FISC our

paper

edgers you can find these everywhere and I find a lot of mine in the thrift stores so I
heard you can sharpen them cutting tinfoil and maybe that will be if you get dull ones from the thrift store that might help but I'm just going to cut this into three sections and they don't have to be even sections they can be odd shaped sections doesn't matter it's totally up to you and you could do a million-in-one things with an

envelope

but this just happens to be three if I just happen to actually cut it down this way three very simple cuts okay one two and three so this
one is going to be my bottom one so the first thing I'm going to do is I'm good with my art glitter glue or any glue to anything will work what stick glue stick or what uh Fabri fix but this will work just fine okay I'm just sealing that up because why not what I want to create is a very simple and basic pocket and this is an age-old classic design anybody can make that and it's pretty easy so let's just put example back over here so you can see it okay and so now we're
going to decorate it so I'm just going to decorate this one in a different color because I already have a maroon one but let's use some blue and let's just go around and ink it up and we'll start and we'll get some

ideas

as we go now really you're only limited by your imagination here how you want to decorate your pocket but you can do it any way you like and it can be a removable pocket so I don't I'm gonna glue mine in so I don't really need to decorate the
back I'm just gonna decorate the front okay so we have that and now I'm saying to myself what can I do next well I have this whole pile of stencils why don't I use some stencils okay alright I'll use some stencils and let me pull this one out okay just for random grabs and stencils I usually get on eBay I go to look for the lowest prices for and usually you can get some really inexpensive ones they usually come from China and they usually take forever but I think the variety they
have is just amazing you can also get them on Etsy and you can even make your own okay how what's that looking oh that's kind of cool right now we're already fancy-schmancy I would definitely keep a baby wipe close by at all crafting times because for the you just never know you know what I mean you got to have it for the just you just never knows okay am I in screen let me check yep okay and maybe I'll do a little flourish over here as well okay there we go alright just for some
counterbalance there pop that over here and now I happen to have these this is some washi tape and I'm trying to use up some washi tape but this has cute little mushrooms on it I think I got this from Etsy somewhere and it a little bit dry somebody mentions you can put it in the microwave and that softens it up a bit oh okay that's not so dry underneath maybe it was the outside one that was really dry but I think I'm gonna run it through the old glue stick adherence double check
double fail safe method and these are these look like stamps I think cool they're already perforated and everything so as you do is tear them off and a mushroom stamp washi tape I imagine that's what you would look for that was pretty sticky but we'll just give a little extra on the corner to see how the corners can sometimes you know have minds of their own okay that should be enough all right so let's put this here as if it's okay let's make it look a little bit like a
letter that's kind of cute and I could have gone around and edged put the edges of that too but you know I think I'm going to maybe I have a if I can find it maybe I can't find oh okay I have a line stamp and maybe I'll just put some lines on the front as if it's supposed to look like a little postcard or a

envelope

and this one is by stamp abilities you're looking for that one I I don't know how old it is I probably owe it says 2007 so it's probably an older one
I think I probably got it on eBay or from a friend or something like that but definitely something to note or you just draw some lines you don't really have to you know do this part okay so I'm gonna try maybe these bottom three okay let's see how that works ready oh it's gonna go all over I know it okay so if I don't want it to go all over I just need a piece

paper

anything easy you know in the land of

paper

I can't find

paper

really really okay here's

paper

well I
would go that yeah okay so we'll go there now where'd I put it all right here we go ready big attempting here right oh it's gonna go everywhere I know it all right hang on we put some

paper

at the top - okay the

paper

there we're masking this is officially called masking okay there we go all right here we go I'm just gonna do it here we go I did it okay what do we get okay not bad not bad at all that kind of works all right all right okay I thought that was pretty cool so we
junk journal using up book pages ep 60 single envelope 3 fun ideas the paper outpost
have the front of this and I think that's really cute and now we you know you can just stick whatever you like in it you just find something quick here okay something quick and there you go a stuffed little pocket all set to go to be glued down just adorbs right first thing done check okay let's carry on let's do number two now you know everybody's probably waiting for this one where is the original here it is okay so here's the original this is the I guess I didn't
really show it to you up close here's how I decorated it I ain't around the edges I tore a piece of edith holden flower there and i just pasted it on the side i had it was a scrap sitting on my desk and there was a little bit of her writing there her printing and i put that on there and then this is one of these appliqu├ęs from aliexpress and this is a flatback pearl in a I want to say I think a beige color from aliexpress as well unknown seller okay and then the back I was going to do
it so you could open and close it with this little tab but it kept opening and opening and opening so I just glued it down and now it's just a complete little tube okay but it's easy to slide things in and out of because you just don't make it too tight when you tuck the things in okay so let's make one of these now we'll put you back over here out of harm's way and we'll put you in line of sight so you can see prototype and what we have to do well let's go ahead
and ink it up so what colors are we gonna do let's see let's see the last one was brown so maybe this one well how about we'll do a a greeny Brown no let's do a pink one let's do a pink one okay and alright dinky in Kitty stink getting going around the mountain around the mountain now this one is for my purposes is going to be seen on the back so I am going to ink the back as well okay now crafters choice you can totally just glue this down and not ink that but I'm gonna
ink it just because it's here and it's available and it's gonna give a little more pop eye candy to the back so it's gonna look like that on the back closed okay so now all we need to do is decorate it up because it's already looking kind of cutie cute because I could have cut straighter but that doesn't happen in my world alright so let's just do a little collage we're gonna do the desk cleanup collage on this one okay so this is just a scrap I found from some

book

that I had on my desk so I'm going to go ahead and just give this a little as that no it's not black it's brown a little edging on this to make it pop a little bit okay and then I'm going to glue that down great way to use up scraps again you can you can clean your way out of your desk by making these things yeah make a little do a little project and grab what's on that desk boy because there's always plenty there and here we go alright now this

paper

is very fragile
so it's excellent to be used for collage all right now that's gonna hang over but I don't care if it hangs over a bit but maybe that's a little bit too much because it might it might tear because it's very fragile so we try that alright how about that that looks actually kind of cool all right this is so fragile that I'm not going to drag it through the glue stick I am going to come around like this and just put a little bit of art glitter glue a wet white glue very
useful for things like this gluing

paper

to

paper

and let's see how do I want it so I could put it like that like that like that now let's just do it like that for fun we're here okay there we go and we can just keep going let me just see what else I have have other things hang on okay I found a few things to play with here floating around on the desk and this is something I used a

paper

punch for a while back and I had a bunch of these and I think I might like to put this across
here but I want to give it a little more emphasis first so let me do that with the old Uline catalog box and I'll pink it up a bit now remember if you have something that's a plain color and you want a little more pop just use your distress inks to run across and all of a sudden it's not playing anymore it's pink okay or whatever color you like and let's see is that long enough yes it is okay so there I have something that is pink now and I'm just going to cut it off
I'll probably need to cut off a little more but that's okay and if you want to have extra emphasis you can go around and just give a little browning on the edges do

using

the multi coloring technique just like as if it's a little bit of a worn piece of lace might have some aging on the edges type thing let me just figure out how wide this needs to be there okay so we'll glue that and I think I'd like to use a glue stick for this all right I'll just glue this down now I
was bad with my glue stick I left the cap off and if you do that an easy trick because you're gonna get like a little rubber stump at the top and you don't want that because you can't glue anything but I literally took these scissors and I cut it off just a thin sliver so you could do it with the knife too but I had the scissors handy and it came right off and I just threw it away and then I capped it up really fast and everything seems to be okay again so if that happens to you
there you go there's a little quickie trick out of that and that's a very gluey okay I'm Ryan frame okay now put this down leave a little space at the bottom all right there on the edge coming across coming across okay today I need a little bit more glue here yep a little more a little shy on that one come back in for the save coming in for the save all right there we go that's not okay now yeah this is my my money band okay all right here we go clipping clipping okay now I think
I'm just gonna darken that up a little because I darkened up the other side so let me don't let me decking that one up a little bit more - okay there we go now we're all nice and emphasized so let's take a peek what we have so far totally cute could totally leave it as that but we're gonna go just a smidge further we've got time okay and now I have I found these out of my little applique box you don't have to use this you could make little bows or ribbons and things
that would work take a look in your you know your gift wrap bag see what you got I could put that there I could put it up here for contrast yeah I kind of like it there let's stick it okay I'm recapping my glue stick I want it I want you guys to holler at me if you see me not capping like my glues okay that's your job and I'll do my best to listen but you know me sometimes I could carry it away and you know goodness knows what can happen all right here we go hand tool all right
and we're down and now glitter glue will hold fabric very well to some degree but if you need heavy strong fabric glue a flap of fabric to be glue then you want to use your fabrics this one okay just use that one if you need it to be super strong this is not going to carry any weight on it it's gonna be just fine all right so I have this and this is cute this is actually a little Victorian a die cut and says be my guide if that was cute and I thought maybe I'll just put that over
here to counterbalance that guy not necessary but I just have it here on the table and I thought well I might as well use it right let my sitting here doing nothing with it I might as well do something with it okay so this grand piece of history will now become part of this art project here you go you will be forevermore immortalized now and put you there I guess you want to go right there okay there we go all right so we can also do we can you know Stickle it up and all that but I'll do
junk journal using up book pages ep 60 single envelope 3 fun ideas the paper outpost
that later because you know why because I'm still working with it and I don't want to muck it up okay so let me grab some

paper

s okay I just got some random stationery

paper

s like I did before and these I did pick up in thrift shops and I believe this one I may about God on Aliexpress not sure where and okay so now this is the top this this is the top this is the bottom and it opens like this so I want to make sure that I'm let's just fold this one in half my on screen I'm
half on screen okay all right let me just tilt this down just a smidge okay there we go alright so this one fits fine but now I want the bigger one behind it so I'm gonna make a bigger one so I'm going to fold you kind of almost as wide as this but not quite and that's me he's not going to be the same he's not gonna be folded in half he's gonna be folded to accomodate the space and that way stick in there he can sit behind and look really cute acute okay so let's get
all these little cutie cutes in place and then we will flip it over and we'll glue it down alright alright gluing oh I should put more a little more on this end yeah really should glue the top one it's easier to get everything together okay just make sure you're tight enough you can always leave room for a little extra more I mean maybe you want to put more in it but I'm probably flew that this okay let me just make it a little tighter okay there we go okay so we had that and
what was the other thing time check yeah we're good I put some flat back pearls on here so let me go ahead and do that they are right here and these are kind of a tan color but I have some that are white and I think white might lend itself to this design better and I have absolutely no idea where these came from probably grab bagg from the thrift store good old good will they have those giant bags often those giant bags are good deals you can't really see everything that's in them so
it's kind of a roll of the dice and you really don't know what you're getting but you know I've been more satisfied than unsatisfied with what I've received but that's of just a personal call can't guarantee anything that will come out wonderful but you know it hasn't been bad okay and you know they have 50% off day and stuff like that I put one of those the air oh come on glass finger okay there we go and you're down and do we want some more sure let's
put some more on why not we have them we need to use them right that's the mission this year use what you got use what you got okay so that's a giant mission isn't okay we should have a yearly mission use what you got oh well that's a big commitment I don't know I don't know what do you think we'll see I'm not committing to that yet I mean yes I'm committing to use what I have but not necessarily not go shopping anymore oh well that I can't quite wit link
to that one yet but I should I really should okay there who are we kidding I could I could use what I have forever here and never be done do I want I feel like I want two more all right I'm just gonna use the glue on the back here for time purposes but probably a good idea to extra glue these down those got some schmutz on there that's what happens when you work with gluey fingers I think where's my little baby wipe okay that's why you always have this at the ready baby wipe at
the ready okay okay that's funny one of you down just now I got the glue wet on the back of the the thingy I'll see if it sticks yeah I guess we gotta put one more there balance right I'm all about the balance okay okay my in line pretty not bad eh maybe one more okay I heard Jeff you need one more over there I heard it all the way over here okay there we go maybe one more there but we can play with that later so there we go isn't that cute so this is a money band holding little
cutie

ideas

alright so that is idea number two from the same

envelope

okay okay put those over there you guys are done No who do you come from where'd you come from I have no idea and put you back there come on stick alright so and here is our first one and here is our first one little pockets we made very cute okay okay but you there and now we're going to do our library pocket library card pocket there we go that's what it is out of an

envelope

as well now so this is basically what
you're looking at you're looking at this okay so what we need to do because I cook I cut this rigid e I need to cut it straight drumroll please actually don't really need to do this because what I'm gonna do but oh yeah I do okay cut it straight goes the arrow and we're hoping okay not exactly straight oh my comb off all right if could use my guillotine here I guess or the cutter but it's just I want you guys to be able to see the process so that's why I'm doing
this okay all right so we have this and now we need to get this to look like this so we're just going to eyeball it who are you don't be invited you go away okay we're gonna eyeball it and we're just going to cut a little bit of an angle then we're gonna look not yet we're gonna now swerve at the top so it kind of looks like the other side as if we planned it all along who will know no one okay so the next thing we're gonna do so we're going to see this little
Gipper over here this little Gipper happens to be in this

envelope

might not be in all of them but I am just going to remove him because he looks like oops he doesn't belong you know I'm just gonna okay I'm gonna tear it okay we got it alright so now it looks the same on both sides okay so next we're gonna grab some washi tape and who doesn't want to use up their flamingo washi tape I do okay so I like the color of this one so I'm just gonna go ahead and put some washi
tape down either side and you can extra glue the washi tape because you don't trust it and it might come off and it very well might so you might want to go ahead and extra glue it but I am going to just go for it for time purposes here you can delay that down uh-huh try and lay down washi tape that's that's an act okay I'm gonna place it place it at the top of where this that little connection happens because it's open here so I'm sealing that side closed with the washi
tape I'm adding decor simultaneously while I'm securing the side how amazing is that all right then you can just flip it over and leave it like that for now okay then we want to put a piece on this side don't have to but you can okay hit my piece and remember if you have upside to your washi tape you want to make sure that your designs are going the same way all right do it the half way up too short go okay yep all right close enough all right there we go that's pretty good and
then we're just gonna fold it over give a nice little crisp edge okay and we're having our little library pocket come into form here and then we're just gonna nip off these little pups nip nip are still in okay and then we're going to note we didn't put any on the bottom but we're gonna go right to rounding the bottom so I'm just gonna use this crop-a-dile what is it a crop-a-dile corner Chomper well can you see that crop-a-dile corner Chomper there is a link below
for this if you're looking for this gizmo very handy especially if your if your corner chomping thicker things you could use a regular corner Chomper I think it would go through washi tape and an

envelope

very easily on its own but if you have thicker things you might want to consider that okay so now we have rounded edges at the top and the bottom so that's looking a little bit more like a library pocket card pocket yeah and so now we just decorate so we can have fun decorating here
let's bring in our Yoo Lian catalog this is this is just any old catalog that I can color and glue on and and it's all fun okay so what color would we like to glue upon today how about well that's got a little bit of green in it how about we do some green there's the green all right and let me just moistening my green with a little bit of water I don't know if that's the right thing to do or not but it does work distress oxide forest moss green it seems to work better
when I wet it a little bit get more green going here I think I head up well let's just see maybe do I want to maybe I want to do a stencil yeah let's do one of these again it's right here okay let's do it all right right here and we're stenciling and we're stenciling these stencils come in so handy when you're trying to cover white spaces do that pretty that's just so pretty right okay let's turn the page because there's all that and we don't want that
on what we're working on so now we're like this and everything's good again so now we're just doing the edges I like doing the edges I'm not too worried about the tape there that doesn't bother me I mean that the sticky part for the

envelope

but if you want to cover that with something feel free these are yours to create as you like okay so we have that and maybe I'll do a little bit at the bottom because we have some of that there and then what we have on the back
okay we have that so let's go around just complete the mission completing the mission very easy tactic 27 okay I have about three minutes okay and do to do finishing that finishing that I'll just go around the whole thing just give a little so it's cohesive cohesiveness okay so we have that and now I've watched there so I got to do something about that so I guess the easiest thing would again be washi tape but I want to use something different so let me go find something
different hold on okay I found this really really pretty eateth holding page so I thought these flowers might look really nice on here so let me just do some quick tear and only that little bee isn't he cute he's so cute all right let's just get all that and see where we go I don't know exactly how it's gonna work it try and get the whole flower crammed and you can always take less later okay so I have B and this well that's kind of cute it doesn't help me out with it
there but that will be okay but I think you're gonna have to become separate little B all right oh look at moon pink moon daisies pink and white clover okay okay here we go all right there okay doesn't quite cover that up so let's do something let's do something in there to cover that area what do I got what do we got I got everything there's tons of stuff here grab something Pam okay oh my god I got this yes I was working on and I could just put this strip right there yeah
why not okay I do that look too weird maybe I don't like it okay I found this strip of cotton that I tore from a tea towel the other day so let me just cut a piece of this and I'm just gonna stick it here but maybe I want to color it up a bit let's see maybe we make it more greeny like the rest of it alright and we'll pull some threads off it make it look kind of harried it's been through you know some exciting times in life and then we'll just glue it down right here how
about that yeah let's do that okay oh when I've gotta go all right let's do it no muss no fuss I might have to 33 so I might have three extra minutes okay that's just glue this down all right and we can trim the edges so we can just fray them want to just fray them that's fine okay so we have that and I'd like to put this here somewhere is that upside-down which way do these go no this way I think okay so I think I can put that here and let me just go ahead and ink that
up around the edges with some Brown okay and a whole lot on here but it's just enough to create a little pop that's all you need sometimes in life is a little pop we used to call soda pop back where I came from down here it's all soda what soda what's soda okay I figured it out after being here for over 20 years now I'm probably over 30 years now hunk with grief I'm old time low what happened okay let's just put that like that okay there we go so now we have that and
now we can put a little tuck in there or something really cute where'd that be go all right let's grab that B he was really I think it's a B I think we have time all right if I inadvertently leave you in the process I hope you had a great time I love spending time with you check me out on Face
