Once Upon A Springtime - Book ~ with Cyndy

I was very excited when Graphic 45 started releasing Collector's Editions.  I knew it was only a matter of time before Once Upon A Springtime would be released.  Luckily I didn't have to wait very long and I knew just what I wanted to make.

3d paper book with a book and fairies in a spring setting.

I used the Santa's List Gift Card Book from SDS Santa's Workshop.  I love all the dimensional projects I have seen using this paper and I felt this book set off the title page perfectly!

I left out the gift card holder and eliminated the center side of both halves.  This allowed me to use the book as a frame.

 I hand cut the pieces I wanted to add dimension too and used foam tape to pop them out.

I just love how everything turned out!  Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my project.

Do what inspires you,
