I just finished the Once Upon A Time Swap so I thought I'd post what I made for my partner. In the show Henry's book of fairy tales is an important part of the story and my partner is a big book lover. And to that my latest obsession with making books and it was just a natural step over to making Henry's book. My partner's favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast
and her favorite characters from the show are Rumpelstiltskin and Belle so I made the whole book about them.
First I made the book. The lettering on the front was stenciled with freezer paper.
Then I altered it... It got fat
(Please forgive the crap in the background. We were at Starbucks.
I used the words to Tale As Old As Time
to tell the first part of the story.
I included some fun stuff in the second half of the story. Like a pop-up teacup!
Pull out posters...
A card game...
And a pull out booklet of the original Beauty and the Beast
I also made some stickers but didn't get a pic of them. I had a ton of fun making this! You can see a few more pics on the OUaT Swap board --> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=414145.0
Thanks Anubisheart for being my partner!
