Well, we are now into the weekend! I wanted to help you out a little with a vintage ephemera washi printable to jump start your paper crafting, art or junk journaling, and/or scrapbooking time with today’s freebie!
I love, love washi. So, I have been desiring to create vintage washi with vintage ephemera items for the longest time. You can use this washi for either scrapbooking, art journaling, smashbooks and other paper crafting uses.
Today’s freebie was created from a variety of vintage ephemera– a french receipt, citrus botanical art, vintage postcard textures, floral dictionary and other sources of vintage paper items.
I like to mix modern imagery with vintage or vintage inspired images; so, this is what I came up with, a set of vintage washi with a citrus theme and a farmhouse or cottage feel! Hope you like the coordinated patterns – there are six different patterns in all.

Facts about the Vintage Ephemera Washi Freebie
As for the details about the freebie, there are 10 elements or washi strips and six different patterns. They are sized at 5.5″ by .75″ (approx. 20MM), the last one is 6MM. As always, they can either be used for journaling in your junk journals, art journaling projects or other types of memory keeping.
The materials I used were all vintage ephemera scanned at a very high resolution or purchased from other vintage CU designers.
How to Use this “Vintage Ephemera Washi” Printable:
Use these washi stickers for your planners, junk journals, as an envelope wrapper and other fun ideas. Let your creativity guide you!
There are several ways you can cut this printable to create your washi stickers and I have included a few tips in the following instructions:
1) The easiest way to use this printout is to print it out on a full sheet of white sticker paper and if you own a Silhouette Cameo or Silhouette Portrait or other digital cutter, (i.e. Cricut Explore) you can cut out the to-do lists or planner stickers using their designer software. If you own the Silhouette Cameo, you can double the image on an 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper on a landscape setting as the sticker sheet is 5.5 x 8”. This will keep you from wasting paper.
2) Also another method, would be to use heavy bond printer paper or you can use 65 lb. white cardstock depending on how thick you want your sticker and then place adhesive via a snail tape runner or with a Xyron sticker tool or machine.
3) The most labor intensive way is to print out the planner stickers on sticker paper and “fussy cut” out by hand, I have spaced the elements so that you can use a pair of good craft scissors to get a clean cut and handle the fussy cutting. In addition, don’t forget a paper trimmer which helps with straight cuts. For hand cutting, a new tool I highly recommend is the Gyro-tool. It’s rotating blade allows you to cut around curvy shapes and is especially good around script stickers. Reader Tip: Cut the stickers while watching TV!
