For my first project, I used the business card design created by Ellie Snow of Mint to create some cards for my Living Stones Women's Ministry. When I tell people about the group, I find myself scribbling down my email and blog address on a scrap of paper. It makes much more sense to have cards with me that I can share with people who are interested.
Here are some of my favorite decorative tapes for this project:
The design for these comes from Lisa at A Cuppa Tea With Me. I cut pretty pieces of double-sided scrapbooking paper to 8 inches by 3 inches. I stitched all around the edges (an optional step--I just love the look of stitched paper), and folded the paper in two.
On the inside, I used two squares of Dymo self-adhesive magnetic tape. When the bookmark is closed around a page, the two pieces of magnet catch and hold in place!
Having double-sided paper isn't strictly necessary, but it makes the bookmark look that much nicer no matter how you look at it.
For my third paper crafting project, I created yet another little notebook--something else I can't get enough of!
I used a design from Carolyn of Homework. She used business envelope liners for all of her inside scratch pages, but I thought my handwritten notes might not show up well on them. I included a business envelope liner page at the front and the back only, and used scrap computer paper from my husband's home office for the rest of the pages.
Each page got two small holes punched at the top, and baker's twine threaded through the holes tie all the pages to one another and to the back cover.
Double-sided scrapbook paper makes for a prettier project with these, too, as well as color-coordinated baker's twine to tie all the pages together.
