Ideal little job for a lap tray when I want to watch what DH calls cr*p on TV during the venings - but I'm working dear!  Might be a use for those pretty pics in those glossy mags I refuse to throw out, made to fit my PiP post boxes.  Thanks!

I made news paper carriers last year - bit of a faff but I had fun.  Half my customers turned up their noses, the other half wanted the ones with either the local salacious gossip, or high priced houses on.  Go figure.

Paper carriers are easier if you make them round a suitable sized cereal packet, once I twigged that it was a doddle.  Best avoid the obits page, no one wants that one!

I just made one! Only out of a4 white paper, but I prettified it with some teal ribbon to close it up.

I've been cutting up old brithday cards this evening (I really can't hang on to all of them forever, I'd end up with a room full!) and realised that I need somewhere to store them.

Hmmmm, I need an envelope thinks I! This was perfect, thank you! The only thing I would say with the tutorial is to make the pictures a bit bigger :)

I know I'm going to end up with a stack of these...

Great tutorial, thanks for sharing. How about using up old rolls of wallpaper.
