Take A Note

I was making wedding favors to try to get them published and this one didn't make the cut. However, I love the idea of little notebooks as favors for a wedding or any big event. 

For these, I did a watercolor smoosh technique like this one from K Werner using Squeezed Lemonade and Shaded Lilac Distress inks. Then I trimmed the paper down and made matchbook notebooks. I added word sickers from Cosmo Cricket and a colored staple. That's it. The thing that took the longest was the drying time for the watercolor!

You could make a lot of these if you needed them in any colors of course. Maybe I'll make some for Christmas gifts next year in red and green or blues. 

Happy Monday,


  1. Absolutely beautiful, Chark! Great project! Hope you had a fun New Year's Eve--very quiet at our house, but that's how we like it!

    1. Thanks, Greta, it was fun--Happy New Year!


I love hearing from my crafty friends!
