#49 - DT project for Crafting with Dragonflies - Anything Christmas







Hi all, it's the last challenge for the year over at Crafting with Dragonflies. It's anything Christmas, so the theme is great, and you can make whatever. From Cards to album, scrap booking to knitting.
Normally we are only a Card Challenge, but are pulling out all stops for our last challenge.

So I made this cute little Mini Scrapbook from scratch. There are at least another five pages but didn't want to bore you too much...you get the idea...

What I actually did, was took a full Scrapbook page and folded it over with a small overlap for glueing , so it enden up like a tube. Then I folded 1/3 of it over again to create the unique look of a paper bag, but with both bottoms open, I did 10 of those and stuck them together on the short ends, two by two. Then glued them together to create a booklet, then covered the outside front and back with what looks like a book binding. All that was left to do was to embellish and create lots of tags. 
I enjoyed doing it ,but it is time consuming and you will need to use solid papers.For the front and back I did use some thicker cardboard to give it that book feel.
Now it's your turn.
Blessings Hilde
