Christy's Craft Challenge - January 2009

Here's my entry in Christy's Craft Challenge: a receipt holder and notebook!

The January challenge was to use the green paper, state fabric, brads, rubber bands and embroidery floss. How did I do it? Well, the wallet uses the state fabric, as well as some Ikea fabric from my stash. The closure on the wallet is part of a rubber band, and the button (also from stash) is sewn on with the embroidery floss. The notebook uses the green paper for backing and brads to hold it together. I went one step further and cut up the information sheet to use for paper in the notebook!

The piece of state fabric I received had Nebraska, so of course I had to utilize that bit! I also like the compass on the front.
