wednesday inspiration :)

WOW! Wednesday already??!!??
And february!! Can't believe it!
Time just flew by too fast.
Anyhow - we'll play no matter what day it is :)
Hope you enjoy this weeks little tutorial.

This week I'll show you how to make a cool frame out of the pages from an old phonebook. :)
Here in Norway we are lucky to have these cute pink pages (along with plain white and yellow) in the phone-book.
I used one pink page for this project (so I guess my hubby won't even notice.... LOL )

What I needed for this project:
1 phonebook page cut in tiny stripes
1 cardstock 12x12 inch (Bazzill white)
patterned paper: "material girl" by Cosmo Cricket (I used "borders" and "elements")
stamps: my Stamp BOX "funky flowers"
chipboard letters: Cosmo Cricket
sewing machine
double sided tape

Cut your phonebook-page in tiny stripes. aprx 1 centimeter.
Add doublesided tape along the edge of your white cardstock.
add the stripes of phonebook-paper, little by little on top of the tape. Fold while you put the paper on to the tape. Don't worry if it doesen't get straight, or if it get messy. Just tear away the "mess" and start with a new stripe. :)
When you have added the folded paperborder all along the edges, machinestitch on top of the paperborder. I stitched in the middle of the stripes. Love how the edges comes up and gives the frame dimension. :)
Added pieces of patterned paper as a background for my photo.
Stamped a little barcode under all the pieces of paper, and stamped flowers on to other pieces of patterned paper.

Added the photo and title on top of my collage of patterned paper, and machine stitched along the edges of the photo.
Cut out the stamped flowers and added them randomly around the LO with a brad in the middle.

ta-daa!

Thanks for popping by and joining me on this "Inspiration Monday" on a wednesday :)

NOTE: This LO was actually made for this weeks challenge over at Lotus Paperie. Go check it out for more inspiration!!
:)

Have a great week.
