Hi everyone! How are you all holding up this month? I know a lot of places still have restrictions and if you live in the south it is HOT! Like upper 90’s with a heat index of over 100 HOT! My husband and I have been trying to stay as cool as possible whether right next to the air conditioner or in the pool..which the water is starting to feel like bath water…ugh! 😎
Well, I am finally sharing the complete reveal of my project that I did a sneak peek for Eileen Hull’s Chapter 3 Christmas in July blog hop. If you missed out on that post you can find the blog hop HERE.
I used a wide assortment of diecuts, Eileen Hull’s: Snowman Christmas Box, Bookmark, Tag and Pocket, Bookplate, Hinges and Label (retired), and the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags (retired) Diecuts. Tim Holtz: Christmas Diecuts and Embossing Folder (used the embossing folder on a tag) and the Holiday Words Diecuts (retired) to create the inside pages, outside cover and spine of this mini book.
I started by applying an Adhesive Sheets on the front and backside of a piece of Chipboard along with patterned cardstocks (for the book, scarf, hat and nose and the pink vellum for the snow girl body…I cut two of those) placed on top of the Snowman diecuts and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut the tabs off of the box diecut and folded to create the base for the book. I also put the snowgirl’s front and back together and I used black gems for the eyes instead of using the diecut eyes.
The pages inside of the book I cut from the assortment of diecuts that I mentioned above. There are three signatures with three pages and one pocket per signature. I cut a piece of cardstock slightly smaller than the inside spine and measured and poked holes in all the pages, the flaps of pockets and the piece of paper.
I tied off each signature on the back side of the piece of paper and then adhered the flaps to the back side of each pocket.
I adhered the pages to the inside of the spine and used binder clips to hold them in place while the adhesive dried.
I lightly decorated with embellishments from my stash, scraps of wrapping paper, lace, pom pom trim, and packaging.
Don’t you just love the little jingle bell hanging from the side of the mini book?
I decorated the spine with the “wishes” from the Holiday Words diecuts. I placed an adhesive sheet on a scrap of cardstock before running through the diecut machine and the adhesive sheet makes it so much easier to place each letter onto the spine.
I used the reverse of the 25 diecut for the cover of the book and I added a mini snowflake ornament, sequin and flatback pearl to the cover. There you have it!
