And here is my finished project (cue triumphant music):
"But wait!" you say. "I thought you said this kit was for a recipe book!" Indeed it is. But let's be honest; I'm just not the cooking type and never would've utilized the recipe pages for anything culinary. So I figured those pages could be for "fabric scrap recipes" instead. Here's what one of the inside pages looks like:
Each page holds a different fabric scrap combo so I can remember what combinations I like, have used in the past, or want to use in the future. So handy!!
And yeah, I know I've turned my pages vertical instead of keeping them horizontal (I'm such a rebel)! I also made one other change to the kit and that was to swap out the silver spiral wire it came with for a gold one I had in my stash. I didn't do this on purpose; I just had a disaster with the silver spiral wire in which it was destroyed (long story), so the gold was my substitute, but I liked how it turned out in the end.
Here's a close-up of the cover, which I made with patterned paper, watercolors, ink, stencils and Washi tape. I made the faux Washi tape strips with dies from the fabulous Tape It Kit.
Keep in mind that to make this kit work for you, you'd also have to have the Cinch book binding tool (or make a friend who has one). But hey- it's a great reason to buy the Cinch if you haven't yet.
I'm just happy to finally have a place to keep my favorite fabric scrap combinations!
