Bird’s-Eye – A Large Tag

Bird’s-Eye – A Large Tag

Happy February. 🙂  Here is another one of those projects I worked on a few months ago where I used a lot of my paper scraps and fibers from other projects.  First, I covered a 5 1/4 x 10 1/2 inch tag by Ranger with scrapbook paper. Then, I gathered up some fabric, fiber and paper scraps and a few odd die cuts I had on my desk and started layering.  When I was happy with how the tag looked I cut the word “Bird’s-Eye” from my dictionary and added it where the eye of the bird would go. I also cut out the definition of the word “Birds-Eye” and glued it above the bird.  At the bottom I used two metal embellishments I had on my desk too.  It was simple and fast to make and it helped me use up some more of my scraps.  Creating can be fun, fast and easy. I encourage you to use simple pieces at your fingertips and create a cute, funky tag or journal page with them.

Until next time,

Laurie 🙂

Sweet Little Burlap Journal

Sweet Little Burlap Journal

Can you believe January is almost over!!!  All I did was blink and poof, it was gone. lol

I have a little project I worked on last year that I never shared with you guys.  I have some rolls of burlap that I really love and I thought I would use some of it to create a little journal. Inside the journal I used up some 12 x 12  scrapbook paper I have had for a while. I just cut the 12 x 12 paper in half making them 12 x 6 pieces.  On the outside I used a lot of left over fibers I had in my stash as well as fabric, trim and lace scraps.  I used an old button and a piece of twine for the closure and the twine wraps around the journal giving it room to grow a little bit.   The tag on the front of the journal is a tag I used to wipe off excess paint from another project.  I left it in that ‘unfinished’ state and just glued it to the front of the journal. I really like how that looks.  I also added a smaller bit of lace scrap and a button to the tag.  I think it’s really cute and I love all of the texture and color it has.  It’s amazing what you can do with your scraps and leftover papers.  Give it a try.

See you soon,

Laurie
