Today I have a cute SNEAK PEEK for you at one of the new release stamps coming from Crafty Sentiments Designs!
This cutie is called Prom Dress and she will be available for purchase on Feb. 22nd:
I decided to try one of the projects that has been on my "MUST TRY SOMEDAY" list and that is a Faux Book Card or Book Shadow Box, whichever you want to call it! I am pretty happy how it turned out...here are some other pictures to show the different sides...
Cut the cardstock for your cover at 5 1/4" x 9 1/2" and then score it at 4 1/4" and 5 1/4"
The Designer Paper for the cover is cut at 4" x 5"
The Designer Paper for the Spine and inside spine is cut at 3/4" x 5"
To create your book pages you will need to cut:
2 cardstock pieces that measure 4" x 10"
2 cardstock pieces that measure 5" x 10"
You are going to score all four of these every 1/2" to the very end.
To create the book pages - take each piece and accordion fold these back and forth - be sure
to use your bone folder between each fold to get nice, crisp folds.
After you have the piece all folded - sponge the edges with ink if you wish.
Then take one long piece and one short piece and "marry" them so they make a right angle,
sliding them together so the pages alternate. Glue the outside flaps to hold the pages in place.
Add the other long and short end to create your book pages, gluing each outside flap together
until you have a full rectangle.
Place your decorated insert onto the inside back cover and then glue your book pages over it.
To create the decorated top of the pages, just cut strips of cardstock and punch one edge.
Glue down on top of the book pages, miter the corners of the two top strips in you wish.
Then just decorate as you want!
