On the crafting table

Today's been a busy day. I've been making envelopes out of book pages that didn't work for cards. I always go for the books with vibrant pictures or interesting pages, those are the ones that I make cards out of. However, some pages don't work for cards.

This usually happens when the main focus of the page is not positioned ideally to fit the card. I've accumulated a ton of pages that I now finally started making into envelopes. Sometimes the main character or focal point of the page is in the middle of the page or towards the top. They won't work as cards, but make perfect envelopes.

I always try to use as much as I possibly can from a book page, so this way only little scraps of the paper is left over. This, of course, means that there is plenty of tiny pieces of paper around. They look fun though.
