Today was the first class I have given this year. My classes should have started on 5th January but because of being ill, today was my first. The girls were all having withdrawal symptons … and me!!! We made a Wish List Book, this means that when they see any crafting goodies they like they can jot it in the book so as not to forget. I took my sewing machine to the class … my old one (26 years old and still going strong) … not my all singing and dancing one … so that the girls could stitch everything together, rather than do it by hand.
The first pic shows the front of the book which we covered with a paper napkin then did lots of stamping. We also made a little save the page book mark.
This is the inside of the book again with lots of stamping but also I have used some digi downloads from the Graphics Fairy … do love this site and they are all free. The first pic shows the bookmark marking the page but this time you have the back view. To make it easier for us we stamped numbers onto the pages before we did anything so that we knew what order the book was supposed to go. There is nothing neat about this book everything is ripped and shabby, even the stamping isn’t straight which is so unusual for me but just the way I wanted it to look. Gold gilding wax has been added to the edges which really ages it.
You can see the middle page in one of the pics where we made two holes so we could add ribbon then we stitched straight down the middle and over the ribbon to make sure everything stays in place.
