sharing stories . . .

a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned in a vlog post that I was excited about using the holiday Starbucks cup sleeves in a project.  Well, I finally got around to completing that project.  I thought I'd share my idea with you.

First, I cut the front parts of 2 cup sleeves and gathered some scraps of red cardstock.



Next, I traced the cup sleeve shapes onto the red cardstock as many times as I wanted pages - I used 12.


Cut out the pages.


I chose to ink all the edges with a dark brown - I considered white - like a snow effect though.





Making sure that your last page (the 2nd cup sleeve) is facing the proper direction, punch holes in all pages.


I used 2 jump rings and added festive rings to hold mine together.



I used bits of red ribbon (from another project that I goofed on) as tabs for each page.


And there you have it! I added 2 snowflake stickers from my sticker stash to the cover.


A small book, ready to record your favorite family holiday stories that you can enjoy and re-live year after year.



catch you soon -
