Kunin Felt and Eileen Hull Part 3

Hello Friends!

I am sharing my third project using the fabulous Kunin Felt and Eileen Hull's amazing new Journal die.  I have already shared a book box card, and a  mini journal so thought I would try making something a little different this time.... a photo holder...

Thinking outside the box is not normally my forte, but as I sat looking at my camera one day, this idea just popped into my head....
 
  1. I butted the two edges of Eileen's Journal die cuts together and glued a strip of card on the inside to give a larger 'floor' area.
  2. The felt was quite a large piece so I glued it in one piece to the journal cover, clamping it overnight to allow the glue to dry.  I did use a glue that is designed for felt - Beacon Felt Glue. 
  3. I cut and scored two 'accordion' pieces to two pieces of grey card which I had cut to the size of  the journal covers.    
  4. I removed the clips and glued the sides of the journal to the grey card and clamped it again until the whole piece was dry.  It is not shown but I added two 'tabs' of felt to the front of the holder, to act as a closure, before I glued the sides together.

You can see above, that I stitched two buttons to the back of the holder for the tabs.  I cut a simple button hole in each of the tabs and hand stitched them.
Above is a view from the inside.
Now for the fun part!  I started by gluing circles and rectangles from pieces of left over felt, but I thought at this point there was something missing.....
I added the red buttons, the stitched square around the lens and a large resin cabochon for the lens.  The word 'photos' and the word strip are part of Tim Holtz's range.

To finish off I added a grey clip and a camera charm.

It has been such a pleasure to use the Kunin felt, the quality is exceptional AND it is manufactured in the USA in a 100% Polyester fibre made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles!

If you would like to see more projects using the Kunin felt, please visit Eileen's blog HERE where you can see some fantastic projects by my team mates and members of the Kunin DT.

Thanks, as always, for your visit, I hope to see you again soon!

Hugs, Anne  xxx

  1. Well, I would never have pegged you as someone who does not think outside the box, you do, and you have proved here once again! This is so cleverly put together, and such a brilliant idea!! (I was reminded for the wonderful folder you gave me and that is still used for keeping die cuts). Love the grey with those bright pops of red, another super project Anne, you never cease to amaze!! xxx
