I wanted to make a small book that we could add mementos and photos from the Jubilee celebrations we were attending. It has been such an exciting weekend with so many memories that it’s great to have a place to keep them and be able to look back and say ‘I was there’!!!
I took a Maya Road Coaster Book
and covered each page with London Line papers
(making sure facing pages matched and the patterns were the right way round!) I used Glue N Seal
to adhere the papers down as this gives a really good coverage and reduces the chance of the paper buckling. Then I sanded
the edges and added Vintage Photo Distress Ink
to the edges. Once I had done the preparation I was able to add embellishments which is always the fun bit! I used bunting die cuts
to make strings of bunting. The fabulous flowers
and gems stones
, buttons and hearts
and, of course, the obligatory crown
I also made a matching tag!
