Time to share my July One Paper Projects (OPP). This idea is to chose one really 'hardworking' paper from my stash and completely use it up on various projects. In this series, I wanted to explore the possibilities of asymmetrical patterns for making pockets.



By selecting different parts of the paper to cut my pocket template, I managed to get three unqiue designs. My favourite part was embellishing each with little labels, frames and buttons. I love working on this minature scale and each little cluster serves to anchor the paper pattern of the pockets. I've numbered the pockets #4,#5,#6 as I intend to send them out to the winners of the next three Sandy's challenge.



Here's the Making Memories' Passport paper I used to create all three pockets and the template I used. If you are interested more close-up photos, here is the link - http://angsandy.blogspot.com/2011/07/popular-opp-1.html

I love this!! What a great idea.

Question: what do you mean by "hardworking"? I can see it meaning hard to work with, or that you use it a lot.

I use the word 'hardworking' in the sense that a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper can yield many interesting and varied projects. Something like this Passport paper with different geometric patterns on it.
Or a paper with figures like this October Afternoon one.



This paper I used up for my June OPP which I blog about here : http://angsandy.blogspot.com/2011/06/crazy-about-opp-1.html. I started this monthly series because I wanted to explore fully the possibilities of using up completely one piece of paper. And get the best value out of my $1.60 spent per paper.
