Anyway on with the project! I made something that you could give a small gift in and that afterwards could be used for storing small 'treasures' or mementos. As usual there are links to products used at the end of the post.
Aren't these Maja Vintage Autumn Basics papers gorgeous? This project changed as I was working on it. To start with I was going to have a stamped image mounted on the front, but as I made it more and more book like I decided to stick with mostly die cuts. These are all by Spellbinders apart from the bookplate one which is Whimsy to match the stamp. The garnet coloured ribbon is recycled from some Christmas crackers!
This is what it looks like when you open it up. There's quite a bit of room inside.
And a view from the 'page' side, with a ribbon fastening to keep it closed. There's more details and pics on my blog here
Well that's all from me today, I hope you liked it, I really enjoyed trying something different, why don't you have a go at something new too, it's lots of fun! :) xx
