Back to school project

Hi Katrina here from the UK. There are only a couple of weeks left of the school summer holidays left here, soon the children will have their new timetables. I love the School is Silly collage sheet and so used that as a base for a small timetable holder so you can keep track of what the children need each day for school.

1. Cut a piece of card 12 x 4 and score every 4"

2. Make a pocket to fit on the last section and cover it with one of the background pieces

3. Cover the sections of the folder with paper and add the pocket, then decorate the pocket

4. add an image from the School is Silly collage sheet to the inside cover

5. Add an image to the front cover and use a paper-clip to close the folder, add a button 

      Enjoy the rest of the summer holidays and I hope the first day at school goes without hitch

                                                                        Happy crafting 

                                                                                  Love Katrina

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
