It's the middle of October and that means I get to share my October Whisker Graphics DIY with you today. Plus I get to announce another giveaway! Yep, that's right, another giveaway especially for my readers. October is sure turning into one fun month here on the blog. But first, lets take a look at the project I came up with and get creative.
I am a big fan of the Bitty Bags and Little Bitty Bags that Whisker Graphics offers. The prints are really fun and perfect for party favors. And for those of us who like to keep it simple, there is a whole new line of plain kraft and glassine bags. Basically Whisker Graphics has created packaging heaven! I knew I wanted to highlight the Bitty Bags in my project this month but I had already done a treat bag DIY. I wanted to do something different and rethink how to use a typical bag. I have seen people make cards out of paper lunch sacks before and so I worked that idea into making a mini notebook from this red polka dot bag.
I am a collector of little notebooks and have a stash of them in my desk. I carry them around constantly and find them useful to jot down inspirations and ideas when I come up with something on the go. This DIY would be perfect for just that, an easy way to make your own little book of inspiration. Or if you have kids, have it as a doodle pad for when they get bored. This is an easy and inexpensive little option for those of you who can't get enough paper goods like me.
Another great thing about using the Bitty Bags as notebook covers, you get a built in little pocket where you can stash pictures or pens or paper keepsakes. Moleskine notebooks have pockets built in and I absolutely love that feature. It was a happy accident that my version turned out to have them as well.
If you want to see more pictures and the supplies I used to make this project, head over to the Whisker Graphics blog.
And now that we've had our daily dose of crafty, we can get to the giveaway! Whisker Graphics is offering a $15 gift certificate to one of my lucky readers. This is good for anything in their shop, Divine Twine, Bitty Bags, stickers, calendars, etc. The hard part will be deciding what to buy but I think you guys are up to the challenge.
