Beautiful Ephemera Binder ( No fancy tools/Dies needed)

Hi Everyone 🙂

Thank you for popping by my blog today. I just wanted to share the gorgeous Ephemera binder with you. The tutorial is up on Youtube and here is the link in case you have missed it

This binder is super simple to make and like the title states, no dies or fancy tools are needed. Even the envelopes are made using a scoring board so no envelope punch board is needed. The covers and spine are made from an old paper pad backing. You could even use a cereal box etc.

I did put a little window in my envelopes and then lined them with vellum. You don’t have to do this but the option is there if you want to. I really do love this binder and its perfect for storing all your cuttle parts/ephemera pieces.

One thing i get asked a lot is ‘do i have any ideas to use up patterned papers’? This project is perfect for that. I will also have some more tutorials next week about using up heavy patterned papers. Make sure you are subscribed to my channel and all notifications are turned on.

Below i have wrote down the dimensions for you.

2 x chipboard measuring 4 1/2″ x 7

1 x chipboard measuring 2 1/2″ x 7

Envelope paper measures 10 x 7 1/4″

score the long side @ 4 1/8″ and 8 1/2″

score the short side @ 1/2″ each end

I hope you will have a try at making this yourself! It really is so simple.

Bye for now

  3. Watched this the other day and it is gorgeous. I did plan to make it last night but couldn’t find my metal ruler to cut the chipboard, so it on the back burner for now. I need to go searching and tidying

  4. This is a wonderful little binder for all sorts of small ephemera and the small journaling cards. Will be making one or more of these to store my washi stickers, butterflies & a multitude of other items. I really enjoyed this project. They will be easily found, just look for the binder & voila!! Be well Ann & TYFS

  5. Love this lovely binder. So useful and pretty!
    May I ask if that lovely frame you have used on the cover ad on the windows of your envelopes is a die? Do you have a link or name for it plz?
