Yesterday I had some things delivered in the post from Amazon and in the packaging there was a long piece of scrunched up brown paper. I usually keep it because I really like the texture of it and I pike to keep things that I can use in my art. I just open it up and then fold it neatly along the dotted lines that make it easy to tear sections off (can’t remember what you call them,- perforated?).
Anyways yesterday my children saw me doing that and asked if they could have the paper. They had an idea to make a book from it and it worked out great. I divided the lot of paper in half and the folded it and stapled it and hey presto! Two scrap books 🙂
Once made my children were very busy filling it with stickers and cutting and sticking things in. Hours of fun from a little bit of brown paper that could have ended up in the recycling bin.
I was busy yesterday working on this as well as some other business. 🙂 What do you think?
The children wanted to make some origami houses after they saw a picture on the cover of a book so yesterday we looked up some videos on YouTube.
I used a lino cut to print this design on blue velvet feel fabric. I’m going to use this to cover some books in the coming weeks. Time to get binding again 🙂
