Allsorts time again and the theme this week is Anything But Not A Card so get your thinking caps on and away you go.
I chose a Digidarla Sentiment and decided to make another book, a sort of diary/ reminder book for birthdays, appointments etc.
This is a brilliant way of using all your bits - short pieces of ribbon or twine, any odd flowers and any odd embellishments, see further down on this post.
I made a mistake by cutting two holes in the wrong side of the front, so I cut corresponding holes in the back and put some rope through to use as ties for keeping closed. These were very, very white so I rubbed some ink on them to tone them down, the same colour ink as I used for the edges of the sentiment and the front and some embellishments.
Inside this book I put quite afew leaves, folded and glued to make pockets to store any bits and bobs - photos, appointment cards or any other stuff.
HERE and I made a book mark and slotted it on the inside.
Then a full year of monthly diary sheets from Cuddly Buddly HERE.
I use these for my birthday reminders.
I only stuck these down at one edge so that they can be removed at the end of the year and fresh ones glued in without making too much mess.
Odd bits of waste peel-offs to make the pouch stand out.
I tied strips of webbing on coloured paper clips, both to use and for decoration.
I stuck envelopes on some pages, and on others, I glued triangles of card to make a little pouch for storing photos or cards.
I cut tags that could be used as a title card for what is stored in that pouch. I cut these from pieces of birthday / Christmas cards that people give me to recycle.
I carried on decorating the pages with odd bits that I had on my desk and in my scrappy box (which is getting very full again, I will have to have a splurge again soon).
A different envelope.
Another piece from Astrids sheet.
On the back sleeve I had a larger print of the sentiment so I made another pocket with it and put a tag in it.
This piccy show the top edge of the book and the bits of web / ribbon tied around the page clips.
An odd scrunched paper flower and a felt flower stuck to the middle of it.
I loved making this book and could probably have used alot more bits.
