Earth Week/Upcycled Notebooks

Hello! It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD. For Earth Week (and in the spirit of reducing, reusing, and recycling) I’ve got some quick & easy upcycled notebooks to share with you today.    I started by taking some empty boxes with fun, colorful designs and I cut them to a variety of sizes (making sure to have both a front and back of the same size for each notebook). Cereal boxes and snack boxes are a great to way get chipboard for a variety of crafting projects. I put lined notebook paper inside, but this is also […]

Twine and December Mini Albums

Hi y’all! I (Rebecca) am so excited to be back and sharing with y’all today! Can y’all believe that we have arrived at the first day of December? I honestly can not.

One of the ways that I do that […]

Paper Bag Journals

Hi there! It’s Tifany here and I am excited to share these paper bag journals with you today. Paper bag journals are quick and easy to make – and are a great size to pack in a purse or backpack.

To start, I used what would normally be the bottom portion of the paper bag to create a place to hold a writing utensil. I simply put strong double sided adhesive along the bottom and side […]

Blessings Book

Hello! It’s Tifany here and I am happy to be back for The Twinery‘s new ‘In The Round’ Challenge  My project may be a little more along the lines of “In The Round…and Round…and Round” because I spiraled my twine to create my circles, but that’s what I love about these challenges…they just get your creative juices flowing and allow you to create something fun.   I’ve created a “Blessings Book” for my newest niece. (I’ve been blessed with two new nieces born less than two weeks apart.) She’s a 1 pound 3 ounce bundle of preciousness and I am thanking God […]
