Welcome to my next project for Couture Creations using the Blooming Friendship Collection! Refer the gallery images to see how I have assembled my elements for each page.
On the front page I created a double-sided paperclip arrangement with various elements of bits and bobs, all glued together. This just slid onto the folded back edge. I selected one of the ‘framed quotes’ from the collection and slid it in at the top.
On the left page, I glued the backed sticker only on the left and bottom side so it created a tuck spot for the postcards and tag.
On the right page, I folded a belly band made with baking paper under the designer paper before sewing them to the card base, then glued a few elements at the bottom. I then created a small envelope that held the small tag, the wine glass and chocolate stickers that I backed with cardstock. I added a bit of interest to the edge of the postcard with some muslin and die-cut leaves.
I ended up adding a small acetate flip window to the right page, adding some muslin, a button and string tie. With the cut-out piece of cardstock I used it as a base for a circle tag and topped it with a circle of designer paper.
On the back page, I used the frame from the cut-out-tag, backed it with acetate, inked the edges, glued it on 3 sides and placed it into position forming a pocket. This pocket holds 2 postcards.
