Paper Projects

Today, I thought I'd share a few little projects I've made recently. This first one, was inspired by my aunt reminding me to use the little verses already prepared at the back of my morning revival book. This one was super easy, probably took 20 to 30 minutes including doing the dishes while it dried. I just cut out the verses for this week, making them all the same size. Took a thin piece of cardboard (backing of a product packaging), decopaged on a scap piece of paper on front, added photo corners and more scrap paper for the back, waited for it to dry and then attached the verses with a mini clothespin.

Today's verses are Romans 8:16 - The Spirit Himself witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God.
and 1 Corinthians 6:17 - But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit.

Last weekend, I was supposed to be cleaning up my craft area when I came across these beads and decided they would make excellent tassels for bookmarks and so ended up making bookmarks instead! I also used some of my "free bling" from my roadside chandelier find on the tassels. The hardest part was figured out how to thread the embroidery thread through. Ended up stiffening the ends of the thread with tacky glue which worked like a charm. I did sand the thin cardboard before gluing on the paper and then sanded the edges all the way around and applied a few generous coats of mod podge and they turned out great!

Last, is a scrapbook layout I made last night. I finally figured out a cheap and fairly easy way to print out the retro pictures from my phone's camera. These are all from our recent cross country ski trips!

And last a point from the meeting last night, "We must redeem the time to enjoy Christ as the supreme preciousness of God so that we can be constituted with Him to be men of preciousness as His personal treasure, in this way He builds Himself into us to make us His spiritual house and His holy and royal priesthood for the accomplishment of His heart's desire!"


  1. Cool projects! You used sassafras paper for book marks...I'm impressed! I love your scrapbook page. I can't wait to discover your way of printing those photos!

  2. Every project looks fantastic!! Love the verses, those bookmarks with the beads look fantastic, and those cool retro pics look great on your layout! Very nice!
