SaWo – Corrugated cardboard

I had some fun layering and stitching this little collage together. No glue was used and it’s 99% machine-stitched! I relented and sewed the top centre button on by hand, but I even managed to get the needle through the little “Hand made with love” heart charm! Patient, I was!!

Most of this collage is recycled stuff and the stamped birds are from the Home Impressions Grunge Plate. I stamped them onto handmade paper from an old Thai or Indonesian handmade photo album.

This is my entry to SaWo’s Corrugated cardboard challenge. Thanks for the inspiration Sandy! =)

  10. This is fabulous….really love it! I so love the look of stitching — but to me sewing turns crafting into housework. Really great piece!

  11. I have been having this love affair lately with corrugated cardboard. It just has that earthy, grungy feel to it…but OH MY, at the beauty you’ve created with it here. Oh so very cool.
    Peace & Love,
