Noel Word Book…..

Here we are nearing the end of the week. I hope it is going well for you. Now that the Magnolia Ink issue two has been released. I can show you something from issue one that I made. I altered a word book.
noel front book extended
I covered the template with paper.

After I drew around the letters and cut out the paper I sprayed the paper with glimmer mist and distressed it with vintage photo. Then stuck them to my letters.

Here are pictures of the inside.

The Magnolia snowflake I cut out out from acetate and then covered in  clear dries glue and sprinkled glitter over this. I did this 3 times and then held them together with a jewelled brad.

The Magnolia baubles I 3d with decoupage glue along the bottom of the page.

These are the last two pages.
back of noel
On the back of the book I used ribbon and a clear snowflake which I stamped small snowflakes onto using brown stazon.

Thank you so much for looking and I would like to say a huge thank you for your comments they really mean so much!

Hello Kim,

Beautifully done!

Sinikka said...

Hi Kim, I really loved your book when I saw it in the magnolia Ink issue. And now I can finally pop the question.......where can I buy those extremly nice pearls that you used on the last page.
I forgot about them, but now you did send me a little reminder.
I'm for sure gonna buy the next issue.
Hugs Sinikka
