With all that said, tonight is going to start my "posting challenge" with a fun project I made last year at Christmas time for my mother-in-law. I got the original idea from Paper Source, and tweaked it to make it my own!
|An inside view of the book! I used 4x6 envelopes in various colors and adhered the envelope flap of one to the back of the previous one. I then added alphas in different fonts and colors and die cuts to dress up each inside "pocket".|
I love this project and the fun papers I used! There are so many ways this can be customized! I even considered making one to keep in my purse so I would have pockets for coupons, receipts, shopping lists, etc. It would be much easier than trying to rummage through my wallet or the sections of my purse! Plus you could add as many or as few envelopes as you need! I happened to use 5 because of the number of kids!
Hopefully this inspires you to create something simple and fun out of supplies you probably already have! Plus this was a great project to help use up some of those extra scraps of paper that tend to pile up through my craft room! Stay tuned tomorrow for another fun and simple home decor idea! Until next time:
Here's to life, love, and creativity!
