Scrap book from Pattern Sheets

After several months of sorting scraps of paper I still had more!

Some of that paper left in the cupboard turned out to be pattern sheets from craft magazines I had mutilated when saving a few pages before putting the rest into the recycle bin. Using the outer cover of an old calender I made a soft cover, covered with some sheeting which has been filling a spot in the stash for about twenty years.

The bunch of grapes are same ‘Wallies’, wallpaper cutouts, which have never made it onto a wall. Look very much at home on that fabric!

Then I trimmed the edges of the pattern sheets and stitched them into the cover. I used a cheap crochet thread which was a mistake, but the proccess worked, and I have a home made scrap book made out of scraps which will hold together well enough for me!

And what have I put in the book?

Scraps …… of paper and fabric, along with some silk ivy leaves! These leaves could find their way onto lots of scrapbook pages, as there are a lot of them falling off a cheap garland purchased for Christmas decorating.

There is another lot of pattern sheets ready for the next volume!
(When I will use stronger thread to hold it all together.)

  1. These scrapbooks are a great idea! How many of us have saved a scrap of magazine or notes for that “some day” when it will be used? Plus, it makes for great eye candy on the blog!

    • Liz,
      The most notable thing about these scrap books is that I am taking photos and putting them on the blog BEFORE I PUT THEM AWAY! Lots of older projects are not up here yet because I haven’t taken a photo.
