Maureen Scott ~ Mini Book using Witches Brew Printable Journal

Well folks, it's my turn to show you another project using the Tsunami Rose Designs 'Witches Brew' Printable Journal Kit. This is a Halloween themed kit with decorative papers, journalling pages and printable ephemera and sentiments. I absolutely love it and have decided to use it to alter a kids board book this week. I started with a small 3" sqaure book of nursery rhymes!

 Each page was then covered with the papers - I have used Mod Podge to adhere the sheets to the book but I guess you could use your favourite adhesive or PVA glues. Once dry, I ran a craft knife around the edges to tidy them up and then sanded them down with sandpaper for a smooth finish and to get rid of raggedy rough edges.

 I started fussy cutting a few of the images from the ephemera sheets, some sentiments and a a few of the tags ready to fit into the book. As its a board book there is not a lot of room for dimension, however, I've got a few bits of bling in there and the fact that the book does not close fully just gives a bit more character!

 On the cover I have used hot glue to attach some ribbon to the outer edge at the front and back of the book. I used a vintage girl and pumpkin image with sentiment. I've also attached some head pins, roses and adhesive pearls to finish the front.

 The first double page I have used some of the journalling pages with some 'Black Soot' distress ink around the edges. I added a sentiment to the left and used an image to make a pocket on the right side. In the pocket is a double sided tag with sentiment and ribbon for pulling it out.

 The last double page I have adhered one of the larger images to some pearlescent orange paper and folded it down inside the page, the ribbon can be used to pull open the 'pop up' image. The right hand page uses one of the decorative papers with a 'happy halloween' vinyl sticker added.

 Here is the pop up opened fully and the back of the tag from earlier.

I hope that you have liked seeing this project, I loved making it and am off to look around the charity stores for more of the mini books to alter!
