Wow! I was up in the wee hours of the morning finishing yesterday’s post and when I checked my email earlier today I learned that WordPress.com had featured that post on their homepage Freshly Pressed! My mailbox had over 50 emails which is huge for me. A warm welcome to each and every one of you including all new subscribers.
I was pretty bleary today as a result of the late night crafting and blogging so it’s a really good thing that the theme for Day 24 is Garden Gnome! I have a needle felted gnome that I made and he must have either felt sorry for me or wanted to cash in on my 15 minutes of fame. Because he crafted the creations for today: file folders from calendar pages.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll have a chance to clean up my crafting space (read the living room) and put some craft supplies away so I can get going on the last dash to the end of June and the final days of 30 Days of Creativity.
As far as I can tell, these folders were created from pages of a Paper-Source calendar, which is wonderful since their slogan is “Do Something Creative Every Day”. Aside to 30 Days of Creativity Team: maybe they’d like to participate next year and donate cool, creative stuff!
If you had some beautiful paper that was large enough you could fold your own folders – simply trace around a file folder and cut it out. Score and fold the crease in the center. If you have thin paper that is pretty but isn’t strong enough you could use a glue stick to cover an existing folder.
These are the calendar pages before they were cut and folded.
Finished folders. Thanks, Mr. Gnome. Very creative!
