I'm kinda tired of doing 12 x 12 or 8 1/2 x 11 lately so I've been experimenting with different ways of showing off our pictures. In fact, everytime I do a clean up of my stuff I find myself wondering if I can make a scrapbook out of it. Well, the other day I was cleaning up my sewing area and came across those little cardboard things you wind embroidery floss on. I was about to pitch them--my embroidering days are long past--when I realized they would be a perfect little album.
I made thumbnails of pictures from my daughters' trip to Europe. On the back I put the location and a punched-out a shape to add some color to it. It's held together with a circular clip--what are those things called?--and i tied some orange trim on it for more color. Since I was giving it to my daughter as a gift I made a pillow box to hold it so it wouldn't get lost on her desk.
