Because I have so many book pages pulled out of books for Junk Journals I like to find new ways to use these in my Junk Journals. Making a mixed media envelope is one way to use up the pages. You can pull several pages, paint and decorate in an assembly line and have a stash to choose from for future projects.

Using the No Clog Writing Cap from ScraPerfect helps to add just the perfect amount of glue to the project. That way it won’t take long for the glue to dry and it keeps costs down because I use less glue.

Paint Envelopes for Junk Journals

When you gut out the pages of a book you end up with a lot of pages that need a new purpose. While some pages are beautiful the way they are others need a little help.

This is where acrylic paint can be a great help. Using an old gift card or room key card and Acrylic Paint you can alter the paper.

Here is a video on How to Paint Envelopes for Junk Journals.

Collect a stack of papers to paint. Protect your work surface as this can get messy. I use old poster board or newspaper to help with any excess paint.

Select the color you want and a page. Pour some paint on the paper and use the card to spread it around. The more pressure you use the lighter the paint layer will be on the paper.

Once you have the paper coated with paint allow it to dry. Or you can use a heat tool to speed up the process.

My pages were already die cut with the Tim Holtz Envelope Die. If you don’t have the die, you can make your own template. Copy an envelope you already have or download one from the internet. With the new punch boards out you can use one of those too.

Once the envelope has been formed I then used a punch to create a closure on the back of the envelope.

There are a lot of fun to make and will be inside the Christmas Junk Journal I’m making. Keep following to see more projects.
