Hi! I'm Emily, your crafty go to girl. I love all things crafty! I enjoy sewing, scrapbooking, photography, card making, DIY projects, home decor, photo projects, personalized gifts, stamping, jewelry making and just about anything that involves creativity. I run a small Etsy shop called paperpixie crafts. I also have my products in several local shops. I am slowly but surely extending my line of products. My goal is to start filling up my Etsy shop and then eventually open a local boutique. Luckily, I have a wonderful husband who can tolerate my craft obsession, and a great family who is always supportive of my goals. This blog is a sneak peek in to my life and my creative thoughts. I'll be sure to keep you posted with all the cool stuff I see along my crafty journey. Thanks for reading!

Bookhouse tutorial.

Create Studio ©
This is Sarah's version that she makes in her tutorial.
Aren't they Beautiful?
Have you heard about Sarah at Create Studio? I stumbled across her blog a few weeks ago, and I've fell in love with her tutorials. She has a great blog full of awesome reviews, crafty projects, party and gift ideas, and more. If you haven't yet, you must check her out. I promise you'll be pleased. 
One of my favorite projects on her blog is her bookhouse tutorial. It's just adorable, and such a creative idea. I loved it so much that I decide to give her tutorial a whirl. 

Heres how my turned out:
*I changed a few thing  in my version, like making my own ribbon from fabric, I covered my book in polka dot fabric, and I added embellishments to the book cover and used a rhinestone for my bird eye .(= I themed this book house in New England Patriots for a Etsy client for Christmas. I think she will love it. ( =
I look forward to making another book house soon. I have so many empty books from where I make my book ruffle wreaths. This was the perfect project to help me clear out my book cover stash. 
If you decide to make your own book house, I'd love to see your photos! So... Head on over to Create Studio and check out this awesome tutorial.

  1. Emily, thanks so much for letting me know about your bookhouse...it's adorable! I love your idea to use the same fabric to cover the book and make the ribbon. I'm sure your friend will love getting this for Christmas!
