Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

Any cardmakers/scrapbookers here?

Im looking for nice paper to wedding bunting with. The bunting is for the table edges, however I have no idea what to buy, where to look or what to look for!

I've seen books of paper before in The Range in passing, can you get wedding specific books and does it have a proper name?? Is there a good place to buy it? It would need to be quite study paper as I will be sticking it to ribbon with double-sided tape.

Thanks.

You want something like this, google 'wedding paper stack'.

I'm by no means an expert, but they pop up cheaply in Lidl from time to time so I've been known to buy them for specific craft projects.

Or google wedding scrapbooking paper. For paper I like craftie Charlie's website. eBay can be good too

Saw some nice stuff in Wilkinsons recently, really pretty. Hobbycraft has a good choice but probably £££.

Thanks. Will check out those places. I did Google it but there was so much stuff, I wasn't sure what was best to buy for bunting!

Sounds a lovely idea. I saw a book of crafting paper in WH SMiths for about £10 - was something like 100 sheets of A4. No idea whether that is good value though!

Well judging by the price of bunting, £10 sounds cheap!

The range often has stacks of paper if you have one close to you.

Probably not what you are after (and I guess you want to make it) but just in case - Tiger does paper bunting in plain bright colours for about £2 a pack. I got some for L's party and it looked lovely.

ETA Tiger also does very good value pads of mixed patterned paper that I've used for decoupage before - but it's one sided - not sure if that would matter.

I saw paper bunting (as a decoration) in the garden centre today. Top just glued over string. It looked really lovely.

Thanks ladies. My plan is to cut a diamond and fold it over ribbon, glue in place then hang along the edges of the tables so it wont be big bunting iyswim? I will pop to The Range at the weekend and see what they have.

Hi all
What type of books do you use for scrapbooking? I want to start as we have so many nice photos of our little one doing different things but I've been looking at so many different ideas. I think I'd like to go for a paper one that I can glue the scrapbooking paper too or am I best to go for the pocket type book? Also what's the most popular a book for each year or one for the first few years I can see how easy it must be to fill a book very quickly. Sorry if these are basic silly questions but I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the products you can get sucked into buying :)

I tend to make mini albums and use book rings to pull it all together. If you put mini books into Pinterest you will find some great examples. Otherwise I would buy a scrapbook album - I think ring bound is easier but some prefer post bound.
Here is a link to show you what I mean
