My First Flipbook

I recently made my first envelope flip book for a dear friend of mine in shades of purple, which is her favorite. I think it turned out really well!

I love the golden flower I glued to the front, and I chose to fasten it with twine.

I handmade the envelopes with my We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board so that I could use my own patterned paper for the envelope bases. I stuffed them all with ephemera and journal cards made using my Cricut and digital paper I found on Etsy, so that she could use them in her own scrapbooking projects (she especially likes journaling on her pages). I think it turned out pretty well, and I’m excited to make another one soon! I hope this inspires your own projects 🙂

Happy crafting, y’all!

The Season of Paper Hearts

I’ve been busy cutting and snipping away at Valentine’s Day cards, which is my first official card-making season since I finished school in December. I thought you might like to see a sample of what I’ve been spending all of my free time doing:

Do you like these? Any ideas of your own? I consider myself a novice, so I was so pleased with myself for having tried several new techniques. Please comment down below if you’d like me to share how I made any of these.

*Note to readers: These were all made in the weeks before the arrival of my Cricut, so these were mostly my own freestyling.
