As you know I've been making crochet boxes with thrifted greeting cards. I even made a little purse. Well, I decided to combine my love of scrapbooking and crochet. This is what I made:
All of the paper is from the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante collection (the only collection I own because it's expensive!).
I cut the paper to the sizes I need for pages and pockets. Then I punched holes and single crocheted all around all of the pieces. Then I crocheted all of the pages together on the left side to form the binding.
The charm hanging on the side came from my husband's workshop. He had a bucket of old hardware. I picked out the most interesting pieces. I super glued the black beads to it and then hung it from the book with a piece of chain. You might recognize the chain from one of my recent haul posts.
The silver thing sticking out next to the roses is a broken sewing needle threader.
These pocket pages are not done yet. Neither is the next set of pages so I won't even show those.
I'm a little stuck on this project. I will finish it though.
The crochet on this is not difficult but it is time consuming. If you decide to do a project like this, think about the strength of the paper you are using. You might need to double it up.
