Denim Note Book Cover + Fiskars Giveaway !!



























I wanted to make something different and came up with the idea I would challenge myself to see how many things I could make from an old pair of jeans kindly donated by my brother.

The first project was this wrist cuff using ribbons from Crafty Ribbons.


































Made from a strip cut off one of the legs.


























Now my next project for Fiskarettes UK... a denim note book using one of the pockets.































Just cut a piece from the jeans round one pocket the size you would like your note book to be. next cut two cardboard pieces the same size, cover one with pattern papers on both sides, the other only one side. Glue the denim piece on the front of this one. Punch holes down left hand side to take your wires.


























I bought a cheap A4 lined not book, punched holes as before and cut it down to size to fit my cover and then bound with my wires. Then you can go mad with decorating the front with ribbons, buttons and pearls !!

The pocket is fab for holding your fav pens and scissors ect.....

Now talking about scissors, I have a fantastic pair of designer Fiskars scissors to give away to one lucky person in the UK.

 Designer Scissors (8")

Just add you name to Mr Linky and I will pick a winner on Monday 3rd July !!

GD for Crafty Ribbons




The lovely Ali from Craft Ribbons asked me if I would like to do a Guest Designer spot on FB,  now who is going to say no to that !!

 So here is my project,  a wrist cuff made with the Butterfly Ribbon Pack























Ribbon Pack - Butterfly

It's very easy to make from a strip of denim cut from the leg of an old pair of jeans ( mine  kindly donated by my brother )


























Everything is hand sewn with invisible thread. From my stash I cut a piece of knitting lace in half and added a piece top and bottom, then a piece of the check ribbon. Next I gathered a piece of sheer ribbon and attached it down the middle. Then I fussy cut some of the butterflies out adding two together and attaching then on top of the gathered ribbon. Finished off with two rows of pearls and two hooks and eyes to fasten the cuff.

Think of all the fabulous Craft Ribbons  YOU COULD  use to make this !!
