It's time for another share today with the 3D Vignette dies from Becca Feeken and Spellbinders. All week we are sharing lots of ideas for mini books so be sure and stop over to all of our teams blogs this week to get inspired. My book is a wedding flip book and inside there is lots of pages that flip up and out to put some of your favorite pictures in to save or give as a sweet gift for the bride and groom. And it's really easy so grab a cup of coffee and i will walk you through it.
To start this project you will need a thin piece of 12x12 chipboard, a pencil and a paper trimmer. Cut a piece of the chipboard that measures 10x 4 5/8. Just cut one piece straight across. Then score the chipboard on the ends at 4 1/4 inches like you see above just enough to make it bend. Cover it with kraft paper to give it more stability on the inside and out. ( i put light peach paper on the inside) Let that dry.
For the inside piece cut a 12 x12 piece of light peach paper and scor it 4" from both ends. Then scor the inside 9 times at 1/2" to make the 4 folds like you see above. You can make it fancier by die cutting the ends with the scallop part of the new "Tiered rosettes etched die set".
Then glue the whole piece to the inside of the chipboard book like you see above.
To make the inside pages you are going to cut 4 pieces of the peach paper to measure 7 1/2 x 4 1/4". fold them in half. And to make the flaps on 2 of them i also cut 2 pieces of paper 3 3/8 x 8 1/4" and folded them in half. Then i glued them on the right side with double sided adhesive only on the top of the back so that it will flip up for more pictures. If you glue the pages in with double stick adhesive tape it will hold better and go faster. (I used to teach a flip folder scrapbook and it was the most fun project to do so this is just a mini one).
The flowers i made for the bottom are done using the "Petite Double Bow and flower etched die set and Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms die set. This way all of it will match perfect since i use the same papers together.
For the outside spine i used the Filigree Bookmark tag die and cut it out of ivory and trimmed it to fit on the outside edge of the book. It adds the perfect swirls to accent the front die i think. And then to keep the insides nice and tight i added a piece of white twine that i tied in a pretty bow with a tag to match.
