Getting my craft on...

I've been getting my craft on peeps!
Above is a little notebook I made using all the selvege edges of the paper (you know the bottom stip we usually cut off and throw away) that came in the last Masters kit.
I saw the idea using the selvage edges of fabric made into quilt squares on flickr the other day and KNEW I had to try this! I just cut them off and staggered them and sewed them up. Great idea for making your own patterned paper. Those strips can be so cool sometimes!

And I was so inspired that I whipped up this little clear wallet.
I used two clear badge holders, turning them where both the open slit was both inside and placed the scalloped ribbon on the spine of the outside and stitched it on my sewing machine. Then I was pretty much done...I just added the rubons on the cover and presto. Done. Perfect to slip your ID and debit card into your cute little mommy's night out handbag and go. This idea could be used in so many ways...I'm thinking I may explore that some more...soonish.

I've used those selvage edges on some layouts, but never thought of sewing them all together. Great idea! I love the little wallet. Cute idea too.
