Vintage Gluebook Class

Paper, glue stick, scissors, and a blank notebook: these simple elements are all you need to create a vintage gluebook! I joined an online gluebook class via Green Paper today, and I'm having a ball! It's amazingly freeing to use just a few basic supplies instead of the piles of ink, glitter, ribbons, buttons, and more that usually spill over the sides of my worktable. Of course, at first I found myself instinctively reaching for those goodies, but after I finished my first very simple collage, I felt free to just cut and paste! If you want to join the fun, just click on the Green Paper Packages link in the sidebar.
I made this cover for my gluebook, (housed in my favorite krafty moleskine of course!)and the pages below, using the free downloadable images that are included in the class, and some of my own vast supply of paper bits and pieces. I printed the butterflies on vellum, cut one out, and used a tiny bit of Scor-tape to adhere it to the middle of the page, so that it flutters to life when the notebook is opened. Ah...paper, glue, and scissors...bliss!
