sharing paper

I recently bought an 8x8 stack of textured, patterned CS at my local Joanns. My friend Bobbie mentioned that she really wanted some but didn't want to pay full price, so I used a coupon and bought it for us to share! It came with 2 of each design, so I split it equally with her (except for one pattern which I didn't care for and I gave them both to her), but it looked so forlorn without its cover. Hmmmm. What could I do to make that stack of paper look better?

I know...make another cover!

So I quickly cut a red textured strip of paper, leftover from a customer's wedding invites this past summer and added a torn strip of brown CS on top. The ironic part being that the red textured paper CAME from Thailand where it is handmade! So it really is "Far East." I hand drew the words using a Sakura Glaze pen, and doodled some faux sewing along the edges and a small flower. I stamped a portion of an image from SU's "Artfully Asian" set on the left side of the title in Versamagic white cloud ink, and added a cool caribbean CS circle to finish it off. I stapled ribbons to the sides of the entire piece and then tied them in back to keep this "cover" on the stack. She should be getting this soon--hope she likes it!
