Something Very Different

What a beautiful day it was yesterday with the sun shining and the birds tweeting away. A perfect day for some crafting.

I wanted to do something very different and did not want to get covered in ink, as I do most days so I decided to do something with....FABRIC !! Shock horror a paper crafter using fabric.... I had several lengths of some pretty fabric that I have used in the past to make Lavender filled hearts and I wanted to put them to good use, but what could I make........

Note/address books came to mind. The fabric was the right size for the notebooks that I had made previously so I covered some very strong pieces of card with the fabric and then covered the inside with coordinating Coordinations card. I punched holes using my Crop-A-Dile and applied eyelets for extra strength and then put in  4 book rings to hold the insert into place.I added some ribbon and funky fibers to soften the book rings, and there you have it 3 Note/address books;

They all have matching gift boxes. The contents include approx. 50 notepaper pages and address tabs and inserts. Price on application xx


  1. Like the colours Cathy.....and very innovative to put the ribbons on the rings.....nice touch! :-)
