I used some ribbon that I got from the Scrapbook Expo last year and a feather piece for a hairband that I got at Hobby Lobby. I also used a Crystal Sticker by Mark Richards. I wrapped the cover with some Bo Bunny dots paper and some black velvet on the Binder.
The closure is the feather piece on a folded strip of Velvet, I then put a flat bottle cap on the back of the flower and added a magnet. The other part of the magnet is in the Chipboard cover with paper. I like this kind of closure, I use it all the time. The other end is glued down and I added some decorative brads. I didn't get a picture of it.
I wrote a little note to Faith to let her know that I love her. I don't get to see my granddaughters very often, about twice a year. They live in Rapid City, SD and I live in Milwaukee, WI.
The book is made out of A2 envelopes and cardstock, I used Laura Denison's "stack the deck" binding system and went from there. I cut the cardstock about 3 ins wider than the envelope and about .25 inch shorter and then I scored on the 3" mark and used a decorative MS Punch. I added some miscellaneous stickers and rub ons to the flaps and matted the inside of the little card and added pictures to them.
I added tags throughout the book, some of them are removable and some are actually glued down.
My husband and I went out to South Dakota at Thanksgiving and I was able to give Faith the book in person. Faith loved the book, and when people showed up for Thanksgiving dinner she had to show everyone. I really think that whe will treasure it for a long time.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures, and I will see you all again soon.
