Happy Wednesday! It is hard to believe we are already half way to another weekend isn't it? I only have a few minutes to post. I get to go help out with a class of sweet second graders today. :)
It was project day again yesterday at Emma's. We were asked to make a Christmas project that included sewing and I had so much fun with this one! I made a mini album for my mom along with a decorated box to hold it. Each page has a picture that goes along with a different Christmas Carol.
I machine stitched the different sections of the tree and then distressed the the edges.
I also used floss on the cover to stitch the lace ribbon to the outside of the box. I really like this idea because I love putting ribbon around the edges of boxes but have a problem keeping it around the outside edges without it falling off. Although it was a little time consuming it wasn't bad and I love the way it looks.
This is the first page of the book which sits inside the box.
More stitching here. I stitched the pom pom ribbon to the page using floss. I also machine stitched the cardstock sticker to the mat.
Couple more pages.
There are actually two more pages but I don't pictures yet. There are lots and lots of goodies on here all from Emma's Paperie. You can check out the blog for a list of supplies I used and to see the other amazing projects everyone did. Seriously, they are jaw dropping! Wow!
Thanks for taking a peek and have an amazing day!
