HERE is the link of the pattern I used for free from a very kind lady.
I inked all the edges with purple.
I covered the back and front with My Minds Eye paper. Cut a cereal box up for the base and covered that too.
Then onto embellishments, a big bow from my birthday flowers, with some brown ribbon John Next Door gave me and a big dazzler in the middle.
Lots of flowers from my stash, paper, ceramic and fabric.
Ribbon with Lace across the bottom.
I ties some of the brown ribbon around the top and decorated with flowers and a bow, then stuck a gem butterfly on the edge of the pages.
I secured the book onto the base by cutting an 'L' shape piece of card and glueing it on before I covered with paper, then put the upstanding bit of the 'L' up the spine of the book. I didn't glue it down but it will help secure abit.
When I showed OH, he said, whats that for ? !!!
It now adorns my hall table and I like it so there.
I have to keep it as being Sharron Osbournes book there is lots of 'F' words, so I cant really give it to anyone !!!!!
