Little Paper Books

Last night Spenser and I sat down and made little paper books. We cut scrapbook paper (from my very limited supply) and plain computer paper, folded them in half, and then I sewed down the center fold (with a needle dedicated for paper sewing). I used Kirsten's idea and placed a Martha Stewart label on each one.

I think I need to buy more supplies and make these as part of Spenser's birthday party goodie bags.


And, my obligatory Candy Corn Contest entry. Featuring patchworked scrapbook paper.

those are SO CUTE!!!!! I have plenty of scrapbook paper to use up. and lots of little artists in the house. how fun would it be to have some of these ready to go for long car trips and such? the labels really make them special. and the candy corn ones are over the top wonderful. :)
