Inspiration fusion

I am fascinated by the continual inspiration and encouragement that we find here in Blogland...ideas picked from various blogs, fused together, can result in the largest of craft-a-long projects to the quickest weekend makes:

 
Here I have a sweet little scrap of wallpaper from VintageSheet Addict’s etsy shop. I folded it in half, then cut a small batch of paper (it could be lined, unlined, coloured, etc.) just a tad bit smaller than the wallpaper.


Turn on the sewing machine, line up the centre of this stack with the needle, press the pedal, and about 10 seconds later you have a handy little notebook!


 
 
Customise with stickers, card decorations, or just leave unadorned. This is a great way to use up little scraps of paper or card, because the notebooks can be any size, even a tiny one is useful in a handbag. I will keep this in mind at birthday party time, as they could be customised and added to goodie bags...
I spotted this speedy at Pami Style, thanks for the inspiration, Pami!

A special hello and welcome to my newest followers, I’m delighted you’ve stopped by!
Happy crafting!
