hand bound, origami wallet book--inside!

center layout, pockets full of ephemera and tags
Here is the inside layout of the hand bound book with origami wallet signature.
It was SO much fun to make, I'm thinking about doing a tutorial for it . . . the images
on the pocket fronts are from the Sewing and Vintage Light and Form sets. The trim
is silky seam binding, that stuff is a delight to play with.

first pocket, tags and ephemera pulled, first side
Here you can see various tags and ephemera (from Altered Pages) pulled from
the first pocket--these are stamped with various images from the Years Ago set,
Vintage Illustrated Birds set, and Nature Medallions.  Lots of ribbon and buttons,
lace and sequins waste with paint, too.

Here are the same tags, flipped--that script background I use all the time is from
the Years Ago set , the images are (you guessed it, right?) The Sewing Set.

Here is the other pocket with the tags pulled--wish the shot of the faux postcard
was closer, that postcard/postage stamp image is amazing!  The flowers are from
the Honey Bees set, and the insects are Nature Medallions.

That was a lot of pics for one post, at least for me--I hope you enjoyed this book
as much as I did making it.

Oh, yes, a challenge, please:
addicted to stamps--one or more pins (each tag has a lightbulb pin in the top)
Creative Inspirations--butterflies (second pic, two tags feature butterflies)
Let's Ink It Up--use favorite embellishments (pins, sequins waste, seam binding, those velvet leaves!)
Quirky Crafts--something you'd see in the sky (bird, butterflies, ladybug, bees)
Stampalot--bingo (first row across)

Have a great weekend, everyone!
