1. Start by finding a pretty paper, preferably with two patterned sides, so that the inside won't be plain white.
2. Cut the paper into fitting pieces. You'll need to have it big enough to work with, but not big enough to fit your entire living room. I've chosen to have the paper strips 15cm long, 1.5cm wide.
3. You'll need to make small holes in the strips one way or the other. Do that!
4. Now you'll need a brad to fit through the holes in each paper strip, like this:
5. When you've fastened the brad, you'll need a bit of sewing thread. Make a small knot, making a circle. Take one end of the second brad inside it, so that it'll hang onto the baubel. Repeat step 4.
6. The baubel is almost done! Separate the strips!
7. If you're feeling extra adventurous, you can add another piece of sewing thread and an ornament inside the baubel.

It's been a while since I've done any scrapbooking. Vacation is over and done with, and the school year is about to start. It was about time I made another layout.
After watching Arya become mesmerized by a circling daddy long legs on saturday, I pulled out the camera and got some shots of her staring.
The only trouble doing anything with the photos was that I had no image in my head on how it should be. Anne Liv pulled out the newest issue of Scrapbook Inspirations and handed it to me. Inside I found a layout called "Adore Red" by Lori Laing, and decided to scraplift it.

I'll come back later to write a bit more about it, but as for now, here's the LO :)

I had just been out shopping before I sat down to make this, and thus had picked up a few "rougher" embellishments; the screw brads are from Panduro, the button holding up the ribbon is from Kort&Godt. Papers are from 7Gypsies, DaisyD's and Prima. The dominos were a real bargain! I'm going back to get some more! They're from Sunday Int.com
The clock stamp was something I just had to buy. I saw it in a shop and returned to look at it over and over (I was out to buy some paper, and my "budget" didn't allow a stamp) But I just had to get it, it's from Crafty Individuals. And last; the "Observation" stamp is from 7Gypsies and the texted tape is from Dymo (generously donated from Margrethe.. :) )
