Collaged Wall Hangings

 I have made some sweet little wall hangings... the size of a greeting card.... mounted on very light foam. The thickness is less than 1cm.
 To hang this little picture, I used some lovely sage green embroidery thread and two pink buttons.

 For this one, I used some lemon embroidery thread and two loveheart buttons.

As they are so lightweight, you can hang them anywhere and move them all around your home.

Dragonflies and Violets.....Little Notebook/Journal

I particularly love using this serviette (napkin) for my paper patchwork. A packet was given to me on my birthday a few years ago and I thought they were just too gorgeous to use at the dinner table. I have been incorporating them into my papercraft ever since!

Sweet Pansies....Little Purse

I made another little purse using a gorgeous napkin with sweet pansies on it. This time I lined the inside as well. The outside has been Mod Podged for durability. It is just perfect to pop in your pocket when you don't want to take your handbag with you.

Sweetheart ♥.... Little Journal/Notebook

A serviette (napkin) was used for this little notebook. Just thing to pop in the pocket of your jeans.... I used Mod Podge over the serviette to make the book durable.

There are 16 little pages for your notes. I have used some soft twine to bind the book so it is super-easy to slip some more pages in.

The back of the the little book.

Marbled Little Notebook/Journal

After marbling a piece of card I decided to Mod Podge it to make it sturdy. Then it was ready to be turned into a little notebook.

The size of the book is approximately 10cm x 8cm which is just perfect for popping in your handbag or in the pocket of your jacket.

Once you have used up all the pages, just cut some to size and slip some more under the twine..

This is the back of the book but as it is all marbled you can turn it around and use this as your front if you prefer this design.

Paper Patchwork....Little Book for Sewing Needles

I made a paper patchwork quilt for my dolly in her matchbox (see previous post) and then when I went to make her bed, realised it was just a fraction too wide. It really needs to be exact otherwise her little bed doesn't slide in and out of the matchbox with ease.

What to do.....
I had also been making some cute stickers and was wanting to use them, plus I have heaps of a lightweight foam. Inspiration hit.... how about a little book for sewing needles? It was worth a try and this is my first attempt.

Matchbox Art...Prudence and the Rainy Day

 I love matchboxes.... I guess because I also love dollhouses and teeny tiny things. Once I have used a box of matches, a world of possibility is now open to me. I covered this one in pretty serviette (napkin) paper.
 I still wasn't sure what it was going to be. It is raining outside so I thought it could be a sweet little bed for someone.... but who? I looked through lots of my supplies and found just the right person... Prudence! She was very happy to snuggle in bed.

I made her a pillow, some sheets and a comfy quilt out of paper. Teddy doesn't like the rain much either....
