Good morning ladies.
Happy Sunday! I hope you all have lovely, lazy things planned for today.
Here is the second installment of "Craft room re-vamp".
... Ways With Wallpaper ...
A while back I picked up three wallpaper books at my local Scrapbox.
They were super cheap and the papers inside were gorgeous.
For months they were propped up against a wall in my craft room and forgotten about ...
... until now!
As we all know, storage for our crafty goodies is essential, and in my opinion, the prettier the better.
I quickly whipped up these A4 sized envelopes using an old, disassembled envelope as a template.
They now house various templates and patterns.
I never throw away useful boxes.
I have covered an assortment of shoe and toiletry boxes in some of the papers.
I have an easy peasy method of covering boxes, leaving no folds and ugly bits.
Again, simple as can be.
The largest, sturdiest box is now used to organise some of my ribbons.
Somewhere in "Blogland" I saw this idea for ribbon storage and tried it myself.
All you need do is:
Cover your chosen box,
Punch holes all the way around at regular intervals,
Set an eyelet in each hole, (to allow the ribbon to flow freely and not snag)
Place your ribbons inside and pull the beginning of each length through a hole.
I also used some papers to line these drawers...
I brought this little pine chest of drawers on Ebay for £1.99.
Gave it a quick lick of AS paint and cut the papers to fit.
Recently I have also used my wall papers to:
Wrap parcels sent in the post (it's really sturdy after all!)
Make little envelopes for handmade cards
(again, using a disassembled envelope in your chosen size as a template)
Cut out shapes to use on Christmas cards!
But, why not try:
Snipping out flowers etc, to use for Decoupage on furniture?
Creating little pouches for handmade goodies?
Covering or creating your own books?
Any other ideas, Ladies?!?
I'd love to hear them.
Thanks for reading my waffle today.
Lots of Love
