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 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8noD4nCU7f4&t=324s

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?
