Well, really there is one box but it is huge!
I think they multiply when the lid is on and it is dark.....
Anyway, what to do with them......
I needed to make something for the Unstampabelles midway post too
for Challenge #57 - Creative Upcycling
with the twist of using something oldish from your stash!
Pinterest gave me an idea, and I ran with it
The one I saw had tissue paper on it, but when I went to use that it tore all the time, so even though I did glue some pink tissue to my little memo, I eventually had to cover it up with tape
The book cost me $1.85: it is one of three I got over 2 years ago from a throw-out bin at Big W
The cardboard cover was free packaging with an order - my recycling bit
The ribbon was also a freebie from a magazine, but it was not good quality and shredded a bit
I stitched the ribbon through the spine of the cover and the tissue paper, but when I put it on the memo, I put it upside down so my pages are upside down now - I was working in a hurry.......
Halfway through putting the washi tapes onto the cover - you can see the tissue paper clearly here
But it tore so I had to cover it over with tape
I tried just a ribbon bow to hold the booklet together but it was not that successful (too much pressure), so I added a bulldog clip
I added some beads to the ribbon to make a page marker, knotting the ends to keep the beads in place.
I think I would need to plan this out better in future if I was to make another one but for the time being it will be OK for my handbag to make and keep notes as needed.
Why not try to upcycle something yourself and enter it at
