January NEW Challenge by Sindi
Design Team Member Sindi submitted this layout for the January NEW Challenge. She said:
Here is my entry for the January challenge. This is my first attempt at DIY book binding, so it was definitely new to me. I created a journal and used the Coptic stitching method to bind it. The covers are made from old manilla folders covered in fabric. I used regular copy paper for the inside pages and more manilla folders for section headers. Coptic stitching was actually pretty easy. I learned by watching a few youtube videos. It created a tight hold on the pages and took hardly any time to do. The flower on the front is from Sassafras and I added a ribbon that's been in my stash forever to tie it together.
Now it's your turn to take the January NEW Challenge. The January Challenge is anything doing with NEW - it could be a new tool, a new product, a new technique, or the project could have somehing to do with NEW - like New Years Eve - Our New Home, etc!. Anything goes! Have fun sharing something NEW with us.
To participate in the January NEW Challenge - just email a picture of your project along with a description to Scrappinpsycho@live.com
All submissions will be posted to The Scrap Our Stash blog and on January 31st a winner will be chosen, and given the opportunity to be a Guest Design Team Member for the month of March. This challenge ends at midnight central time January 31st.
