Vintage Christmas Book


Adriana is getting ready for Christmas giving
She show us her vintage book that would make a perfect gift.  You could also use actual pics instead of the collae images Adriana has used.

'Vintage Christmas Book

 Hi everyone, Adriana here today at Meg’s Garden to show you all a Vintage Christmas mini book, showcasing the wonderful “Musical Christmas” papers  designed by Denise.

The Cover and book
I used the accordion book which Meg’s garden sells and glue the pages all together to create 6 page book plus cover and back cover.

I then hinged the book together with Tim Holtz Diecut and brads, only after I adhered the papers to the covers.

On the cover I used a chipboard frame and adhered glue and glass glitter a bird charm, vintage image , velvet flowers and Jewel Pin, all these are available from Meg’s garden website.

Inside book
Each page is decorated with the different Musical Christmas papers, each page I have attached German scrap white border, cut out Vintage images and created Snowflakes with the papers and glitter.

The poem I found from an old Christmas poem book.
I hope you enjoy my book and hope it inspires you to create a little magic for yourself or for a gift for someone.

Cheers Adriana'
