Day 141: Pirates – Not Just for Boys

So, the sea inspiration for this project isn’t as strong as some, but really, my starting point was the pirate brads.Pirate Diary

I have had these girlie pirate brads for a while and just haven’t known quite what to do with them. When I finally had ideas yesterday morning, I couldn’t find them. Luckily, they turned up and I was able to use them for today’s project.

I decided to create a felt covered composition book. That was the easy part. I decided to make it into a diary with a Velcro closure which was a little bit trickier, but still not too bad. I cut the letters and the tags using my trusty old Sizzix machine. I wasn’t sure how it would work on felt but it worked like a dream.

So, not overly inspired by the sea (other than the pirate-themed brads) but I tried some new things with this project, and I am happy with how the overall project turned out.
