Mark’s Finest Papers





I think this set is simply adorable. I knew first thing when I saw it, that I would make a little sewing kit. I used THIS TEMPLATE from Mirkwood Designs.

Front view of sewing kit.


Back side of sewing kit. I sewed buttons to the sides and attached black thread to wrap around the buttons to close the kit. Doesn't that stamped zig zag stitching look real?



Outside of needle pack. I stamped the thimble with versamark and heat embossed silver ep.

Inside of needle pack. I cut the top off of a needle pack and glued the back to the inside of my pack.



Thread holder. I stamped the spool from the set twice. I cut them out and glued them together and when that was dry I wrapped the thread around it. I cut two little slots on either end to hold the thread.



Button pack. I used a small ziplock baggie. I filled it with black and white buttons. I stapled the topper to it.
