I’m always on the look out for great paper craft projects, especially ones that help you recycle paper at the same time. Just out today is Kristin Roach of Craft Leftovers‘ new eBook, Card. Paper. Ribbon published by CraftyPod Publishing. Learn how to take your old greeting cards (I have mine all saved in a box just waiting!) into beautiful handmade paper. But it doesn’t stop there, Kristin shows you how to take that handmade paper and turn it into a stab stitch sketchbook. Don’t throw away your wrapping paper either! Learn how to turn old giftwrap into papercloth and sew yourself a papercloth wallet or zipper clutch. Finally, there’s ribbon and how you can learn how to combine your excess ribbon into your yarn projects. Crochet a market bag and a knit project basket that looks ready for spring!
I especially love the eBook format. The step-by-step photos and text are fantastic, along with printer-friendly pages containing all single project instructions on one page for easy reference (and to save paper). Pattern templates are also included as well as a handy list of resources for papermaking, crochet, and knitting.
