I’ve got recycling in the bag

Welcome to the last installment of “stuff I made for my Package Pal.”  I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to participate in something like this EVERY month because it sends my productivity into the stratosphere.  My Pal and I exchanged several emails asking questions and getting to know each other a bit. 


I discovered that her favorite blog is A Beautiful Mess and her favorite store is Anthropologie.


The stars collided and I ran to my recycling bin to snatch out the Anthro catalog I’d just deposited and saved it from it’s pulpy reformation to live on in a more glorious form… the magazine clutch as tutorialized by A Beautiful Mess HERE

Step 1:

Collect all your favorite images

Step 2:

Arrange into a square


Step 3:

Stick all the pages together with a layer of laminating sheets

Step 4:

Use your mad envelope making skills to assemble that bad boy, using more laminating sheets to seal the seams.

Step 5:

Sew on a button and a closure loop with embroidery thread. 


This project was so much more fun than I thought it would be!  I am SO glad I sprung for the 50 pack of laminating sheets because I see many more of these in my future!
