Paper Charms

Scrap buster project One of the best ideas I've come up with for using my scraps, which were getting out of hand. Easy project, similar to finishing signature threads, just sandwich thread between two identical shapes and glue together. Can be any combo, length or number of strands. Use to embellish pages, tags, fabric edges, tabs, paper clips and more. Decorate one side or two with jewels, pearls or however you want. I edged mine with glitter gel pen to make then shine. Tip: to make an easy to handle loop, just put a dab of glue on your finger...

Mini Pocket Folders

Sweet Nothings I often try to create multi-purpose paper crafts that can be used for junk journals or planners but can also appeal to other paper crafters. I also send a lot of gifts and cards.

I came up with the idea of a mini pocket folder holding tea, some sweet little sentiments, poems, verses or notes. I used the DIY wax vellum technique. Keeping in mind it is Valentine month;...

The soft wax vellum is very touchable as I turn the pages.They look so pretty sitting on my bedside table in a jewelry...

You’ll be amazed at how beautiful the colors in your papers become using this technique. The wax melts in to the paper so no need to worry about the wax crumbling or cracking and it always gives a straight beautiful cut. It can be glued...

Display Valentines

Display Valentines I’ve had a lot of fun making Valentines lately. With just a few more gifts to make the need arose for some very tiny Valentines to fit in to some small heart shape boxes that I’ve collected over the years and a quick glance at what is on my desk provided the inspiration.  I save everything and for a while I’ve been gathering the leftover negative shapes from punching tags with my tag punch which of course is one of my favorite tools as it already has come in very handy for making very quick flip Valentines. The...
