Hello everyone! *enthusiastic wave* It's Grace here to share a project with our wonderful blog readers. Earlier this month, I was going through my paper stash and noticed that I had quite a few pieces of scrap paper leftovers from crafting and scrapbooking. I have also been holding on to some pretty packaging paper or the stiff backs of writing pads thinking, "Oh I can find a use for those later."?
Well my project this month will help you use those scraps up by using The Twinery's baker's twine to book-bind them into a mini album.
You can take a stack of papers and trim them all to the same size or leave them sized as they are, and play around with the order of stacking the papers so they provide some level of "peek-a-boo" visual interest.
Then using binder clips to hold them in place, punch some holes using a Crop-a-Dile (works like a charm through the layers of paper!) or any other heavy-duty hole-puncher and use The Twinery's baker's twine to sew the papers together into a book.
I also used the Carribean baker's twine to go around the cover stiff board for an extra pop of color and texture to the mini album. Now to fill it with photos from our recent family getaway to the water resort!
You can see more photos and details on how I put this mini album together, including close-ups of the stitch I used, over at my blog, Tales of a Multi-Tasking, Craft-and-Design Loving, Mother-of-Two, Singaporean-Living-in-the-US, Corporate-Working Mom Named Grace Hester. If you do try this project, I'd love to see it! You can either leave a comment on this blog post, share it on our facebook wall, or post the photos to our flickr pool!
