inspiration monday

Hi my friends.
Hope you are all fine.
I have been so busy with the 3ndypapir spring release this week - so sorry I just left you with the sneak-peeks last monday...
Anyhow I'll make up today and share a super cute minialbum tutorial with you.
This minialbum is a paperbag album, and I used the new "secret garden" collection by 3ndypapir.
If some of you, my friends in US or other places in the world want to purcase this collection, please contact me by e-mail:
and while waiting, please join my inspiration monday.
enjoy!


For this project I have used small paperbags size 7 cm X 20 cm.
I bought these at Minnehjørnet, but I guess you can get them in your favourite LSS or online.
All patterned papers are 3ndypapir
a ribbon to tie around the book
overlay by Hambly
dymo text
crocheted embellishments bought on Etsy


I put all my 3 paperbags in one stack and sew them together using my sewing machine.
I stiched forth and back, to secure the bags. This stiched line will be the "binding" of the book, and after I stiched it looked like this:


Now I attached the ribbon around my book.
I glued my ribbon to the front and back to make it stay in place.

I Cut 12 pieces of patterned paper size 9,5 cm X 6,5 cm
to cover all the book-pages and the cover.

I attached all the pieces of patterned paper to my bookpages, and used my "markedsdag" tag-paper (3ndypapir), my hambly-tag-overlay, crochet-flowers and ladybugs to embellish the pages and added titles using my Dymo.
I was SO inspired by my friend Lene to use black against all the bright colors.
Thank you Lene - you are amazing! :)

VOILA!
The book is ready, and I added my pictures.
I decided I wanted this to be a book about Eiruns passion for crocheting.
I added some pictures and some tags to the pockets.
And here is how my book turned out:







Thank you for visiting my blog!
Hope you enjoyed this inspiration monday.
And please give me a link if you make a mini inspired by this. I would LOVE to see you work of art!!
Have a wonderful week!!
