MC May/13 - Blizzard HB Book

I'm so happy with the way this booklet turned out. Most of you know I taught a "No Sew Booklet" class this weekend and I added this booklet as a surprise to the repertoire. It's originally design by Hedi Kyle and I remember making a few of them about 4 years ago and thought the students would really enjoy this structure... Time does fly by too quickly.

This time I made the pages larger than the height of the structure, relying on the pages for the support.
I forgot to mention in my web site description, that as a final touch I added a punched out butterfly sitting on the top of the pages. Love that little detail. BIG GRIN. Also that the structure was made from off white Canson Ingres paper.

Anyway you can see lots more views and descriptions etc by clicking on booklet image. Enjoy.

I even got to use some of Suzanne's rubber stamps (Quietfire Design) in and on it besides my own calligraphy.

And it fits for these challenges:
