I woke up to snow this morning, a thin layer covering everything. Pretty, until it all turns into slush underfoot and under traffic.

I've been working with cardboard again. I wanted to make something entirely mine, not using anyone else's methods, and came up with this. I used bookbinder's thread for the stitching and reinforced the back with bookbinder's tape.



 And this little scrap of cardboard couldn't go to waste...

  3. I love your cardboard collection, they are so awesome. I'm always messing about with the amazon boxes that arrive. It's addictive

  4. These are beautiful. I made a tag recently using corrugated cardboard for 'Tag Tuesday'. A blog run by Carolyn Saxby and when I look back over the tags I have done, it is one of my favourites. You have enspired me to get out the cardboard again.

  5. Cardboard is so honest. I love these!! Where do you get all these ideas? The well is very very deep, fortunately!
