So I haven't had time to post anything recently because I've been working on a few projects. The first one is for our school's upcoming "Santa Workshop." In addition to the normal items you find at these things, our PTO invites local crafters to bring in items to sell. I am going to be selling a couple of items, including these altered notebooks and the bookmarks I made earlier this year.
They are nothing fancy. I bought the notebooks back in August during the Back to School sales and bought all of them for either 10 or 25 cents a piece. The paper I used to wrap is a pack I've had lying around for a couple of months. I don't use it for cards because it is really thin, but it's great for wrapping items. It's a little thicker than wrapping paper, but not much.
I then used my ever growing scraps to make the little critters from my Create a Critter cartridge. The stamps are from My Pink Stamper and Scrappy Moms. Both of which I highly recommend!
The hardest part was actually wrapping the notebooks. At first I used my ATG gun, but it was actually too sticky and if you laid the paper down and it wasn't lined up correctly, there was no chance of getting it off without ripping the paper. I actually ended up using some double sided tape I had in the house and it worked a lot better.
I'm off to start making some of our dishes for tomorrow. I like to get a couple of them done early to free up the oven.
