Today I have a set of "books" that I created using the plain brown paper mache books that I purchased at AC Moore. I have always wanted to decorate these books so I had tons of fun making these. The theme for the books is "Friends".
For each of the books I started by covering them with some gorgeous DCWV decorative paper. It has lots of shimmer and glitz in it.
For the blue book I used a sentiment from Get Well Labels Twenty along with a frame from this set, diecut with Spellbinders Labels 20 and matted onto Grand Big Scallop Ovals. The frame is colored using Copic Markers. The decorative piece along the top of the book is Spellbinders Flourish Trim die. I also added some beautiful flowers that I created using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.
For this book I chose a sentiment and frame from Grateful Heart Vintage Labels Two, diecut with JustRite Vintage Labels Two and matted onto Spellbinders Grand Labels 11. I also added more beautiful Bitty Blossoms flowers.
For this book I chose a frame and sentiment from Live, Love, Laugh Vintage Labels Two, diecut with JustRite Vintage Labels Two and matted onto Spellbinders Grand Labels 11. And more Bitty Blossoms!!
I didn't want to leave the book ends plain so I chose 3 different sentiments from Good Friends Labels Twenty Nine, stamped onto cardstock and diecut with Spellbinders Petite Ovals. The scrolls along the top and bottom edges of the books are included in Large Fancy Sentiments.
I hope you enjoy looking at the books as much as I enjoyed creating them. Now I just need to find a place to put them so that my cats don't eat them!!
Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. I hope you have a great day!!
