I've been playing around tonight making a Neck Pouch. Laura from Following the paper trail, had this cool idea posted on her blog today for What's up Wednesday. She is so super talented, if you've never been to her blog before you have to check it out.

I wanted to try this, but didn't have any Grunge paper. That's what Laura used. I made a prototype with cereal boxes covered with paper. It a little too stiff, so I'm off to find some grunge paper tomorrow to make another one.

What do you do with these? Well, Laura had her purse stolen recently at a scrappin event, and came up with this Grunge Paper Neck Pouch to wear around her neck to hold her money, credit card and i.d.

I love how cute this turned out, and can't wait to make one with the grunge paper by Tim Holtz. Let me know what you think and don't forget to check out Following the paper trail. Thanks Laura!
