* matchbook notepads

Posted on December 6th, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Paper Crafts.

These little guys are for yet another swap, this one run by Dub & Sam for matchbook notebooks. The swaps are keeping me pretty busy lately, but I love getting the mail, so it’s worth it. For these I just glued fabric to a piece of card stock (Yes paste is awesome). Aren’t they cute? I also made a few from old Xmas cards. I save all of my cards every year (the one I cut up was from my insurance agent, so I really mean all). I’ve got grand plans for doing something or another with them one day, who knows what.

    Hi Maitreya,

    I’m your swap-bot buddy for the three pin swap — I love the flower pin that you sent me. it looks like a candy cane. Thanks so much! I’ve been wearing it on my coat all week.

    We use our old cards by cutting them up to use as gift tags.
