I’m working on a brag book!
I’d forgotten how much I liked doing paper-craft projects. I used to fold origami, for instance – got heavily into the Thousand Paper Cranes type of folding. (What’s really cool is that packs of origami paper are deliberately sold in quantities of 1,000!)
I bought a (giant!) A3 scrapbook, some new coloured markers, 3 styles of alphabet stencils, and some adhesive photo corners from Paperchase. I’ve found that it works best to trace the letters with a mechanical pencil, which has a much finer lead than a wooden pencil and gets into the stencils much better. Then, I remove the stencils, correct errors in the letters with the pencil, and then use the coloured markers on them. The markers turned out to be too thick to work with the stencils directly.
It’s a fun project, requiring a different set of skills than knitting, which makes it easier to avoid frequent repetitive strain injuries from knitting that I get. Heat packs are my friends!
Would you like me to post photos from some of the pages when they’re finished?
