LESSology Challenge #27 ~ Packaging Central

Our new challenge at LESSology is called

Packaging Central

So it is understood - work with the packaging materials, hmm.... like these paper?


if you are like me, order most of your crafting supplies online, you should have paper like these too, you know, the one they used to filled up the gap in between the goodies so they won't shift around during shipping....

Well, every time I get a piece or two, I just stretch them out nicely and folded then into my stack, slowly.... I have a pile of them, thinking someday I will make good used of them AND that someday is today - when Clare ask to make a note book for her, and she wanted those without lines, just plain paper.....


I start out by cutting the paper, fold them and stitch them together like a little booklet, I used 3 pieces of paper and make 3 booklets, and then stitch them onto a piece of kraft card stock


next is to find a piece of pretty paper for its cover, score and glue and then start decorating, easy as 123




and here's July prize


"Sun Kissed" paper collection from GCD Studios

Yummy isn't it? So come play along with us
