One thing leads to another.

Starbuck Journal for 2010 needs 26 stamps.(Yes, 26.)
26 stamps need 26 cups of coffee/tea/any drinks.(Yes, that's a looot)
After two years in a row writing in Starbuck Journal gave me joy, of course the hunting for that stamps begin....and in about 10 days, I brought back these lovely Christmas paper bags safely home with me. I fall in love with the colour that is not too bright, but still feel christmasy to me.
You know me....this girl must thinking about making something with these things. LOL. You couldn't be more right.
And this is what I made so far :
Cut the paper bag into 5 pieces. Front, back, two sides, and bottom. I don't need the bottom part, so I put it aside. Cut 2 pieces of cardboard with 18x25cm in sizes.
Glue one cardboard to the front cover and one more to the back cover with gel medium. Then cover the whole paper with gel medium one more time to seal it. A quick timing in working with gel medium and the right pressure will give you the 'no bubble trapped' result. However, you also need to be patient. Sometimes, when you leave the work overnight, the result will be crisp and flat in the morning.
After the cover and the back were done, I cut light brown suede fabric slightly smaller than 18x25cm, then glue it to the inside cover, again with the gel medium. But this time, to make the softness of the suede remain, I didn't cover it again with gel medium, I left it just as it is.
After that, cut 9x24,5 cm cardstock and glue the sides motif from the paper bag to it. Make the cardstock get covered both sides with the paper.
Right now, all I can think of is... this could be a good cover for my December Daily 2009 album. Although I still get no clue what will I put inside. But as always, a journey of thousand miles begins with a single step, right? And tonight I make that single step. Later, the album probably looks like this:
Hope you can find this idea useful.
And, of course, wish me luck on getting that Starbuck Journal soon. *wink*
