Hi there -I hope your week is off to a great start!
I’m still in Spring-time crafting mode around here. During my craft room overhaul (aka massive cleaning project), I came across this super sweet children’s book.
I just love illustrations in vintage children’s books, and the rich colors. This one is particularly charming, and luckily, I found two of them!
These sweet pictures are the inside covers of the book. I love that they are adhered to the book board cover. I gently broke the binding of the book, and cut the inside covers in half. I stamped a flourish with a clear Staz-On ink pad and sprinkled with fine glitter. Always, have to have a little sparkle! 🙂 And, I really like the contrast against the aged book paper.
I found these great boxes that are actually shaped like books at the local craft store. Just perfect! I painted the inside of the box, wrapped the outside in patterned paper, and added book paper along the outside. Vintage seam binding, flowers, stitching and buttons add extra texture.
I’m looking forward to adding these boxes to my springtime displays. Wouldn’t these also be great for a baby gift, or for Easter filled with candies? So fun!
Have a great rest of the week and Happy Creating!
