Chiyogami Challenge - Projects #6 & #7

Does anyone else feeling less crafty this summer?  Maybe not feeling less crafty but not finding time to craft?  After hibernating all winter I just want to get out in the sunshine as much as possible!  Thus the lack of posts since its got warm.

Two projects today - both came from the same sheet of paper.

The first was using a small strip to cover the top of a notepad.

  • Cut out sheets of note paper.
  • Staple together.
  • Glue a piece of decorative paper around the top (covering both sides).

The next one is even easier.  I'm sure you can figure it out for yourself!  My tip is to make sure there is glue in the fold so it will be attached to the paper clip.

That's all for now.  Off to the lake in a bit for a little canoe & swim.

Chiyogami Challenge - Project #5

No step by step pictures for this one but it's pretty easy (hmm... I feel like I've been saying that about a lot of these projects).
  • Glue wooden stars to paper & let dry.
  • Cut out & glaze the paper.
  • Glue a magnet to the back.

One piece of paper was enough for a big & little star.
