What day is it today? It’s SAS Crafting Day! (SAS=Short Attention Span). But, for all my wonderful manly readers out there, I’ve also included some photos to keep your SAS riveted to the post. Ready? Here we go!
1. Buy a plain, kraft paper covered journal (doesn’t matter what size).I have bought them at Barnes & Noble and Archiver’s.
2. Select three coordinating papers from your scrapbook paper stash. (I don’t scrapbook, but I do lurv some good scrapbook paper!)
3. Cut out three pieces of paper from the scrapbook paper…Since we’re talking SAS crafting here, I don’t have measurements, just use your judgment to make a pretty pattern. On the edges of these papers, I’ve taken them and swiped them across a coordinating ink color from an ink pad.
You’ll end up with something like this:
Halftime: Hey Guys! Look! Cords:
Oohh…. So Pretty!
Are you a RockStar?
Yes, you are. Go buy your wife some flowers. Now, that’s RockStar.
4. Okay… back to Crafting. Get some ribbon. I just have a box of ribbon that I’ve collected clearance sale and coupon sale ribbon in. It all should be fairly thin ribbon and fabric-y works best. You’re going to tie and tie and tie and tie those ribbons onto the spiral binding of the journal. Ready?
What you may or may not notice here is that the laundry is right in my view of the TV. Do I stop my crafting? Nope. This was a Sunday afternoon. Football was on. Kids were fine. Moms can relax, too. Give yourself a break.This picture is bad (of the tv), but I wanted you to see what the view was. Look at what a master I am at Ignoring Laundry.
Keep tying on the ribbons all over the spirals. Don’t have them hanging too long, just long enough to fill up the spirals and make them look oh so pretty. Like an Easter Bonnet.
And there you have it. Your very own SAS Craft (Yes, the journal changed. Sorry, that’s how SAS I am.):
Ooh… look! A RockStar!
