 Hello everyone,

I'm back and sharing this time my project for LITTLE RED WAGON  where the lovely Shanni is hostess with the theme..The Power of Love - Love ATG

So, I went big..

Beautiful serviettes glued down onto 12 x12 cardstock..

Die cut book pages..

and destroyed my phone book for the love of craft..

Glue these pages onto card stock.

Then die cut one size smaller..

and kept on going until I had enough and nearly too many.

Inked around all the edges..

  Until I had all my bits together..

Used this strange colour card stock for the box edge trims and matting,
 but it worked.

Also for the leaf veins.

Glue the page centers together and curled the edges..
and also added dimension foam in between to hold the pages up.

I made a deeper box than normal as the card was quite dimensional..

There she is nestled inside..

with fully loaded lid too..

The books dimension..

and the flowers, they were all inked edged too.

Little bird..

The die cut "With Love", glued only on the ends and hovering there.

A little birds egg..

And there she is..done.

So do come and join us

Thank you so much for stopping by.
I'll be back, yet again with another DT..
