Today I have a mini, fatty book created from a paper sack and bitty glassine baggies to share with you - something I created a while back. I love using my sewing machine (or more accurately, my sister's sewing machine) to stitch away on paper --- makes it double the fun --- and I so love the texture created by the stitches.
Here's the front, with the cute little dragonfly and it's rose-head. yes, very peculiar I admit, but cute nonetheless. little bits of vintage trim, silk ribbon, and scraps of patterned paper come together in a miniii-book --
Take a peek inside, before I chatter on... simple sentiments and pretty things to cheer the heart -
... a sweet little tissue flower with felt, a button, and a brad...
and of all surprises, I finally found these Prima hydrangeas... somewhere in the mess of my table...
Felt!! and how wonderfully the PTI dies cut through them...
And, yeah, below I messed up on the stamping a little bit. Do not judge unless you are the queen of perfect stamping.
... and this is the last page. the tag you see peeking out holds two trinket pins for the recipient's use, and the pocket is created from the base of the paper bag (know what I mean? the doily covers the actual base of the bag). if you don't understand, I'll try to explain again properly next time.
See what a fatty it became!! it can't even stay shut-- how dreadful.
here's why... taggies, with ribbons and lace, in the pocket-pages... (you can see them peeking out in the photo above)
for a sweet, crafty friend to use on her projects.. she let me know just yesterday that she'd received the bitty book, so now I can share it with you all.
that's it from me today.
