Scripture Crafts

Hello Creative Friends,
Happy 4th of July!  I hope you enjoy your day.  I’m so grateful for our freedom and those who serve and have served to help keep it.

I thought for my first Sunday post on my new blog, I’d share this little Scripture fold-out album that I made to put inside an Altoids size tin.  I’ve been wanting to make one of these for a long time.  I finally got to it.  I’m going to give it to a special friend.  The fold-out has 5 panels.  I was going to print out some verses from the computer but I ended up using some of my Verve Plain Jane bible verse stamps that I have.  I thought they worked well together.

I added some buttons, little brads, a punch bird, and some little punch butterflies and flowers to perk it up.  My flower on top of the tin is made with punches.   I used some of that October Afternoon Thrift Shop paper that I love so much.   I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it.

I just put a few buttons and a punch flower on the first page as it would be on the top when it’s folded and I wanted to tie it up with a bow.  You can click on any of the photos for a closer look.

The above photo is how it looks all tied up inside the tin.  I just attached the ribbon on the underside of the last panel so I could bring it around and tie it.

Supply Lists?

I decided I’d start putting my supply lists for my projects at the bottom of each post so they are easier to find.   Sometimes I just say things like  card-stock or designer paper or just punch shapes though as I use what’s in my stash sometimes and don’t have a clue where, when, or what color or brand name they are.  I don’t always write what color of ink pad I use either.  When I start keeping track too much, it doesn’t remain fun for me any longer and I like to enjoy what I’m doing!

Have a creative day,
