Quilting - with paper

Hello! Well this week I've been spending lots of time at my sewing machine, but working more with paper than fabrics. I got inspired by one scrapbooking page I did, where I pieced the background together, and sewed all the pieces together using a zig zag stich. I've been busy recreating this look on lots of my other projects.

I was inspired by my amazing Auntie Kim who always makes beautiful handmade journals. I've altered journals before, but I've never built my own. So today I did. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I think I will have to make some more of these.
This is a toilet paper roll, covered in paper, with a ribbon to hide where the paper meets. I wrapped cellophane around, dropped 3 lindt chocolates inside and tied the ends. I put my little santa
on the outside of the cellophane. Its cute and super fast and easy.
Well thats it for now. Where does the time go?
Thanks for visiting!


  1. WOW!! The wow is for both your wonderful creations as well as for hearing that I am an amazing Aunt! But hey... I thought I was supposed to teach you how to make books at our Christmas craft session.... now what do you want to do? I guess we can always make more books. Let me know. I sold tons of creations at the craft sale in HJ - but now don't have much left for the sale in Whse... and no time to create, as we are going to Whse 4 days per week lately. Last week we were there Sat. Sun Mon Tues (girls went, I stayed for craft sale) Thurs Fri Sat and are going in later today and then tomorrow again. LIFE IS BUSY!

  2. I am extremely impressed by your crafting prowess! Dana and I especially like your little chocolate holder. Can't wait to see what you come up with next!
