Got these sweet little wooden flower buttons from Daiso. I have been wanting to use them on a page, but could never suit them onto my previous pages. So yes, finally they’re glued to this one!


Every single patterned paper used here aside from the main 12 by 12 paper is by Fancy Pants Designs that I got through the PaperCrafts magazine I bought. I’d outlined most of them to give that ‘used’ look by applying chalk ink throughout all the edges. That brown checkered ribbon however… gosh! Seriously feel it was a mistake putting it there. Looked sort of mismatched. Too bad I don’t have better looking ribbons of this shade.


A quote I just tore word by word on a piece of leftover patterned paper; and then edged them with brown chalk ink.


Now these I had painstakingly cut out after pasting them on a thick cardboard. They’re all in the same set I got from that magazine. Eventually I also edged the words with blue chalk ink. I tried experimenting without them being outlined, but the title didn’t really stand out, hence the chalk ink. And ooh! A miniature clothes peg!


Yet another cut-out from that PaperCrafts magazine that I’d pasted onto a thick cardboard. Attached is just a button I happen to find lying somewhere on my fur rug. As for those two cotton string, I’d glued them using PVA glue. The best way of getting a perfect glued string is to draw temporary pencil markings and then glue over them. And since I wanted them straight, a ruler is definitely handy.
