I did it, I finally got my machine out to sew flaps to add to a flap in my DLP journal. ..Ok don't get excited, I am still 7 weeks behind, but I am getting there. lol
I was inspired by the flaps/pocket that Roben-Marie Smith made, go see, she even has a video..so i started to look for things to make into a pocket. As week 8 was back in Feb, I wanted to use something from that month.
I had kept these train tickets and reserved seat tickets from a trip to London.
I trimmed the longer ones down to the same size as the smaller ones...
I then punched a corner out using a circle punch.
I put the tickets together and stitched around 3 of the sides..
All I need to do then was attach them to the original flap using washi tape.
But what to fill them with? i cut 3 strips of card and backed them with patterned paper.
After much searching(and help from twitter friends) I copied out this poem about the views from a train window. By R.L.Stevenson
here are the cards tucked into the pockets with the flap open.. The original flap is a piece of marbled paper, I didn't add anything extra to it as it would make the whole thing too busy.
And with the flap closed and the poem hidden behind..
