heia mamma

...which means: go, mom!

this was a gift for a dear friend of mine, a hard working and great mom, and a Crafter with capital C, i'm just sorry she hasn't got her own blog going yet.
this was the project i enjoyed most making this yule; a card wrap. the envelopes-out-of-old-childrens-books was something i hadn't done since i myself was almost a child. inspired by kimberly at anemone, and it was really fun making.

i made some cards out of left over cutout scraps.

the little black book is for addresses, and the smallest pocket is for stamps. i added a tiny ballpoint pen in the address book pocket. and i made another one for myself:


looking forward to seeing some of your crafty gift projects!

Those are lovely! I love the fabrics you chose.
I will have to try envelope making.

I really love this booklet. I like the old art of handwritten letters. I always send thank you notes when I get gifts. Carrying something like this would allow me to leave quick little notes when something needs noticing and appreciating. Thanks for the post!
