INKLING: Ephemera, Origami & Rice Paper {fusion}

Ephemera Cards via homework | carolynshomework.comIf you’re a scrapbooker or paper crafter, you probably know what ephemera is. They’re bits of paper typically used in paper crafting. The actual definition is: things that are important or useful for only a short time: items that were not meant to have lasting value:  paper items (as posters, broadsides, and tickets) that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles. I love these pretty little bits of book pages and other tidbits.
