It was a present for the owner of an LSS I design for. Across it's ten inside pages, I spelled out my thank you message. The book is held together by gluing down the accordian-fold spine. I added the stitching as an embellishment and made a slip-cover for it from another piece of Ooh La La paper.
This project combines many things I love :
- paper construction
- playing with fonts
- layering embellishments
If you'd like to try your hand at making one of these, here is my tutorial. I recommend using a 'hardworking' paper that has a variety of patterns, colours and designs. You can add photo booth strip-sized pictures with a couple of journal labels and have a mini-album completed in a hurry.
Linking up to these parties.
