2021 Topic 12: Sustainable Crafting
When my grandchildren were here a few weeks ago they sorted all my "bits" into piles of different colours and we made "scrap" books for their homework notes. They love little flaps and secret places where they can write little bits and pieces and so normally go home with at least two or three. So my supplies were a bit depleted!
This close up shot shows how the text stamp looks on tea stained paper with all those different fonts making it a great background layer. A little bit of stitching on the layers also pulls it all together.
It's worth investing in some tiny tag dies as they make the best use of tiny pieces. I love when labels on clothes come with thee little pins - they make a novel way of attaching the tags.
Larger labels such as this one from Letters 6 can be made into little pockets when sewn onto a backing piece of paper and again investing in a mini tag punch means every little piece is used.
The inside of the notebook was made using some of the larger pieces from my little stock pile of papers, including some of the PaperArtsy Tissue Packing Paper - I am becoming a huge fan of this lovely feel tissue! Some of the larger pieces were made into flaps and run throughout the book.
