Don't be afraid to use sewing on your project. A random overlapping stitch around the edge for example is fun and quirky. I bought a little sewing machine from John Lewis a while ago and leave it set up just for paper crafting, here's the link for their mini sewing machine. It's a little gem really, so easy to use. Just remember not to glue edges together before sewing as it may gung up your machine. If you don't want to use a machine you could try the Sew Easy range from We R Memory Keepers. A variety of heads are available enabling great designs.
The inside has been decorated too. The shape is cut from a Spellbinders Nestabilities die.
Buttons and brads are Basic Grey. That large Birthday metal sentiment is available HERE. Tim Holtz "play" ticket.
I'll have a candy for you over the weekend so pop back then :-)
