What a Show Off!

In my effort to "use up my stash," I went digging in a bin of supplies that I call my "Hey, I could make something out of this!" bin. In the bin I found a journal kit (by Colorbok) that had the lofty price tag of 99 cents on it. It was given to me a year or so ago by a scrappy friend. The journal was roughly 5x8 inches in size, with acetate covers, and came with some ribbon and rings, and a few odds and ends.

I decided to use the clear covers from a MOSD Show Off Album (4x6 inches) to make this mini album. I cut the acetate covers to match the size of the Show Off album. (The clear acrylic Show Off album makes for a more substantial cover than the thin acetate.) I added the large flower and button, and some extra ribbon. And now I have this little book to keep by my computer in which to jot down notes and ideas. I can easily add more pages and more tabs as it fills up! I'd have to guess that this project cost well under $5 to put together!

What can YOU make from your stash and left-overs?! I'd love to see!
