ephemera is awesome swap 8 1/2 x 11 envie newbies welcome

All you got to do for this swap is fill and 8 1/2 x 11 envie full of items, can be printed off only if on heavy card stock or on vellum type paper. Each piece must be an individual piece meaning if u print cut it into each single piece. If you are printing try your best to throw in something nice but it's not mandatory to do so ok. Thanks

What is ephemera?

Ephemera what is ephemera? 1. things that exist or are used or enjoyed for only a short time. o items of collectible memorabilia, typically written or printed ones, that were originally expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity.

My idea of ephemera is old stamps, old used postcards, old or used railroad tickets mainly the colors are tan brown or aged looking. I sometimes even die music sheets I have printed off with tea and bake dry (that is without causing a fire) oh lawd please do not start a fire ok. :( LOL ) I usually with mine print off the search term ephemera in google images and then cut. I have distress inks I sometimes use to to age the paper.

Please everyone have fun and enjoy this swap. i thought it would be so much fun to do this type of a swap.

Newbies are welcome but I will be checking profiles. Please rate. this is USA only. Thanks

My idea is the pretty or cute parts of stuff that usually gets tossed and also the old stamps, used post cards, tickets etc. I save things like envelope linings made of foil, cute still nice printed corner of a card, side piece of a box that had a flower on it, or sometimes I fussy cut out parts of a cover of something because it had flowers on it. That count or no? I may be too much of a magpie journaler heh.
