Learning from someone I admire

Learning from someone I admire

Please believe me when I say I can always learn something new.
Please believe me when I say you can too.
Today Lisa led me to a blog I LOVE! I have not been there in months. My bad. I found a wonderful project there that I had to try tonight and now I want to share it with you.
I made a stationary portfolio with my own twist. At the end of this post I will give you a link to the original post but I am so excited I have to share.

I sewed a length of twill tape to a button through a little embellishment I made to go on the front of the portfolio. The twill will act as a closure so sew the button securely. You can sew only a button and twill but you will need to secure it to the front of the portfolio so you might consider punching two small holes through the cover to sew it to the book. I did not do this. I sewed it to the embellishment and then glued the whole piece to the front using fabri-tac by Beacon Adhesives.

Oh the inside I glued a little elastic loop to hold a pen in the spine. It is a great little place for a pen, a stylus, or other little things.
The pockets will hold cards, envelopes, writing papers, post-it-notes, etc.

I told you I would include a link to the wonderful
blog that inspired this project. Here it is
I know you will find more there to capture your imagination. Paula and Deb rock! Paula has also included instructions in this project for making your own cards and envelopes. Get Busy Girlfriends!
Until tomorrow please believe me...you can do this too!
