So I was baking and couldnt bear to throw the cream cheese box away. I grabbed some paper I'd been saving for something special and this is what I came up with! I just pasted the paper and some cardstock bits on and added the lock brad...What do you think?
My first attempt at a handmade book was a success! Although I only used regular thread to bind it; I think I need to buy some heavier thread. I'm going to use it as a mini phone book to keep in my purse, as my husband and I only hve one cell phone, and he usually carries it. This way, if I'm at work, I'll have all my numbers with me!
There are little stick people in a corner of every page.
So my mom found this nifty little wall hanging in the attic when she moved into her new house, and was just going to throw it out! I snatched it, cleaned it (please excuse the dust that has accumulated since ) and put my thinking cap on. I decided to paste some paper into the backs of each of the little cubbies (there is actually little mirrors behind them) and dug up some photos of my husband and I from when we were kids and pasted them in. The plan is once we start a family to add pictures of our kids to the empty spaces, and maybe a few trinkets from future family vactions, outings, etc. I would have liked to paint the wood first, but it actually ended up fine because my bedspread is a chocolate brown so I'm going with a brown/teal theme. ANYWAYS, take a look
