I've been busy crafting, keeping busy any way that I can to kill the time until the hubby comes home in a few weeks from his 6 month deployment. We've all miraculously survived intact even though my munchkins have had a few close calls, mostly due to their own evil behavior. Here are two projects I created this last week.
The top blue one, is an album made from cereal boxes, glue stick, cardstock and some brown linen paper. It's just a base, I have yet to embellish or add pictures but I will get around to it.
The second book is a journal I made out of yes, what else, cereal boxes, glue stick, card stock, scrapbook paper, linen paper, thread and needle. Made completely from scratch, hand stitched by me. This journal is the smaller of the two that I made. The larger one was made as a gift and I mailed it out and forgot to photograph it, not that my photography is all that great but you may have wanted to see a visual of them side by side. Hindsight is awesome.
It has nine signatures made from three sheets that make six pages when folded in half for a total of 54 pages. The pages were cut at 5x12 and folded in half. This is actually the second and smaller one I made. I made two journals from 30 sheets of 12x12, a cereal box, thread and two small sheets of linen paper plus glue stick.
I will definitely be making more of these in the future. I just need to get some more paper first. :)
