Handmade File Folder Junk Journal

Okay, I have another new love! lol! These little mini albums are awesome and so much fun to create! I coffee stained my File folders before I created this and then I also used Vintage Photo distress ink and Peeled Paint Distress ink on the edges of the ephemera and the album. All of the excess file folder I used to make the inside tags and pockets.  Soooo Much fun! There are so many tutorials on you tube on how to make these, you should go check them out.  I actually bought the Ephemera for this one from Ephemera's Vintage Garden. You can purchase her awesome work from HERE. It is called Secret Garden. She also has a Etsy Shop that you can buy individual misc... from and don't forget the awesome freebies on her blog.
 Believe it or not this is a Junk Journal! Great Mothers Day gift, don't you agree?
 
Check it out!
This is the Cover
I added some scrap lace that I had and a couple pieces of Washi tape

 

Inside view- The Tag on the left comes out of a pocket and the tag on the right just fits under the band. Of course added a couple strips of Washi Tape for D├ęcor.
 
 
 

 
Large open top pocket for tag in the left page along with a small pocket at the Bottom. Right page added ephemera and Washi tape for decor
