Note holder


My craft journey has taken me down a different road lately. I have joined a weekly course in Cartonnage. I'm not sure how that translates into English but it is all about making things out of cardboard such as letter racks, boxes and notebooks etc. I have long wanted to make my own book from scratch, including the inside pages but this was my first project and I have to say I really enjoyed making it and I'm happy with the result. It measures 12cm square (just under 5 inches)and the paper is an Italian design called Fiorentina. I bought a little bloc of notes for the inside and recovered it in matching paper. Hoping to make a few more now that I have the hang of it!

Oh Shairon I absolutely love this. The paper you chose is gorgeous and the colors my favorites. You have the gift to create such lovely things.
How is your sweet Teddy doing. Mine is pouting these days as I have had to travel into the city without him. It breaks my heart but I will not leave him in the car untended. But it gets treats upon my return. He is getting quite pudgy! LOL
