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 🙂

Fabric Bead Charms

Fabric Bead Charms

Last week I made my first fabric beads.  You can see those in the previous blog post.  Of course I had to use them in some projects. I made some charms and a key chain.  I just love them.  They can hang anywhere. I plan to hang one on my purse.  I also used one of my beads on a long hat pin.  I forgot to take a photo of it but you can see it in the video and the link for the video is below.  I really enjoyed making these and I just love the way the beads I made and the other beads I used look together. I especially love the fibers on the beads I made.  I have a few other projects I am working on where I used my beads and at some point I will show them in a video and/or on my blog post. Until next time have fun creating!

Pockets And Posies – Two Pockets From One 12 x 12 Paper

Pockets And Posies

I am trying to use up a pad of scrapbook paper, which by the way will take me 50 years lol, so one day I sat at my desk and played with a sheet of paper until I came up with a pocket that I liked.  I was able to make two pockets from one 12 x 12 sheet of paper.  I randomly machine stitched fabric scraps on some of the pockets and paper scraps on the other pockets.  Then I added some fabric flowers I made a long time ago.  They are really easy to make and super cute.  Check out the photos and there is also a video showing you how I made them.
