Altered Envelope turned Tag Book

Firstly, I am super excieted with the new theme that I chose for the blog. Love the bright and cheerful blue. WordPress has come up with some fabulous changes to the menu as well, which is making bloggin alot of fun and easy. Please feel free to give me your views about my blog’s new look.

What I am sharing with you today, is my first attempt at making a tag book. What really had me going was that I could finally recycle, which is what I “REALLY” enjoy. I have recycled some old envelopes here. I wish I had taken photos of how I actually fixed this project !  Basically I just folded three or four envelpes in half, slit one side open while I punched the other side with two holes and bind them with 2 eyelets. I know, its never simpl understanding someones direction so maybe I’ll one again with a tutorial.  But for now, heres what I came up with. I wanted to keep the quotes/encouragement lines, simple, short but inspirational. I had so much fun thinking of elements to relate to the specific quotes and going wild with paper, ribbons and colors !

I’ll let the pictures do all the talking from here.

Another Magnetic Bookmark.

I’m glad so many of you’ll liked the magnetic bookmark tutorial.

Here is another one, designed similar to the first one with the same quote, which is so dear to me.

Thursday

I am so overwhelmed becoz I have so many previous projects to update in my blog. August has been a very busy month here in Dubai. So its going to be a very gradual process of uploading the scores of new ideas, that I had tried out ~ some turned out fantastic while some were, lets just say, a wee bit of a disappointment !

Anyway, I’ve had fun, and I suppose, thats all that matters. So you too, keep coming up with ideas and put them into action. Thats all that counts ~ not the end result. That will come. It always does 🙂

Good bye till we meet again.

Stay safe.

Magnetic Bookmark Tutorial.

Here is a quick tutorial on how to go about making a very simple but unique magnetic bookmark.

Some of the material you’d need, is an A4Size thick cardstock which is folded in half. I think, I’ll let the photos do the talking from here.

These magnetic cubes are the only exceptional item in making this bookmark. You can easily cut one of the cubes in half. 

The A4 size cardstock is first folded in half.

You can then create your bookmark topper as you would want. Embellish it with simple designs or ribbons. I have used a computer printed lovely sentiment on the front with abit of some craft punch and left the inside with some DP. After the DP is stuck on the inside of the bookmark, we then stick the magnet pieces on the inside end of the bookmark as shown below.
