Not long ago I was hanging out with my friend Cindy Shepard. Awesomely creative woman who has wonderful energy. She showed me how to use old envelopes to create Smash Books. I was blown away. Here is my version of her wonderful inspiration. Enjoy!
Make your cover from cardboard. Any size you want!
Cut open your junk mail. Leave the windows!
Paint the pages all different colors
Stamp them when they are dry
Add some color with crayons! Yes, CRAYONS!
Stitch about 5 pages together
Fold the pages on the stitches and glue them in the binding of the book
I love this! What a fantastic way of recycling envelopes !ReplyDelete
Hi Mark, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, ChrisReplyDelete
Hi, Mark! I just happened upon your show, and I'd love to make a paper bag smash book. Do you have the instructions online or in one of your books that I could purchase? Thanks for all you do!ReplyDelete
