Winter Memories

Little Yellow Bicycle “Winter Twig” papers looked great on this little journal. This book is so
simple to create. I used chipboard and
covered each piece with “Winter Twig” papers, using the “Snowy Window” for the
front and back covers. For the inside pages
I used other pieces of the collection: “Ski Sweater”, “Brown Snowy Scratch”,
“Winter Strip”, “Frosty Diamond”, and “Winter Blue”. I sanded the pages for a slight distressed
looked. The Cinch by Memory Keepers was
perfect for binding the book: I punched the holes in the spine side of the book
and then threaded the “Cinch" coil through the pages. I added Little Yellow Bicycle embellishments:
snowflake buttons, labels, chipboards, tags and snowflakes throughout the book
pages. I punched holes on a few pages
(right side) and threaded ribbon and “Winter Twig” confetti through for an
added altered look. To finish off the
book I added a few different ribbons to the coil, tied them off cut and
continued till I got a fairly full look on the spine. As the final step I edge the pages with “Tim
Holtz” Distress Tumbled Glass ink.
