few projects


One of my nephews is having his tonsils out next week, and I wanted to make him a small gift.  I had heard he recently told his kindie teacher that there is "NO PAPER" in his home, so I figured a book of paper would be appreciated.  It was easy to put together... I simply gathered on 8.5x11 piece of cardstock (brown), a piece of cardboard the same size as that for the back, and a piece of red cardstock that I trimmed to 4 and 3/8ths x 11.  I scored the red piece at 2 inches (going the long way) and adhered to to the brown.  Then I scored it at two inches on the opposite side (leaving the 3/8ths for the spine) and adhered the cardboard piece.  I used padding glue on the spine to hold the printer paper so he could easily remove pieces.  Add the name, and it is done.

What is padding, you ask? I have been asked many times, so I took a picture of the bottle.  Basically it is the glue that holds notepads together.   You can easily rip off one page at a time.  :)

Mom used up the last few sympathy cards this week, so I had to whip out some more.  I still laugh how stunned I was, when I first started stamping, that my friend had a WHOLE SET of sympathy verses.  Now I have several. 

Have a good week!
