We've been having some major storms blowing through California! Our power even went out for a couple of hours. We frittered away the hours playing games by the fire~kinda fun!!
I wanted to show you what I made with a bunch of recycled envelopes. You can click on the picture for a closer view.
I gave a tutorial in the previous post. After I decorated several envelopes I made tags to fit in the pockets.
I punched a couple of holes in the side and added rings to bind them together.
I attached the envelopes two differnt ways~right side up and sideways.
I made mine a inspirational 'book' of sorts..but it would make a darling photo album..just put pics on the tags and each page...
See the little 'Treble Clef' paper clip in the upper right had corner? You can get those at the major office supply stores for a fraction of what a scrapbook store would cost!
And here's the back of the book.
It's a fun little project..perfect for using up scraps of paper and bits and bobs of embellishments!
My inspiration was the quote:
Leave the Rest to God
I stamped the words on label stickers that I'd 'antiqued' using spray paint in Wood Tone.
Then just cut out each verse and attached it to each page..
Hope you try it!!
Many thanks to my sweet friend, Judy, who taught me how to make these darling books!
