Take that grammar. I love not being in school anymore and writing how. ever. I. want. :)
I thought I would make my vintage book work for the 25 cents I paid for it and get two projects out of one book. Here goes...
We had a little "photo shoot" that included throwing the pages around. Rolling in them. Sitting on them. So we could make this...
A bookmark (side one and two) for the some special grandparents in our lives. I couldn't help myself. I love it too so I made one for me. We slid one into a book and gave it to my husband's father for Father's Day.
This is the rough collage but I added "Don't worry. We can hold your page for you" at the bottom of one side.
*Please copy my idea! I would love that and then comment here and let me know so I can check out your awesome finished project. BUT please don't take the images of my kids for your own bookmark. Thank you!
With the rest of the pages I jumped on the book wreath band wagon and made one myself.
I wanted to do it cheap - don't I always? So instead of buying an inexpensive foam wreath form, I got this large wreath at the dollar store. I took my 25 cent book pages and my glue gun and went to work.
It comes together pretty fast - less than an hour (or one prime time TV show).
It looks TERRIBLE until you are almost done. Trust me. Don't doubt. Keep going.
It's also a bit messy but I like it like that. The messier the better for me.
