Well, I am pretty sure I am not Wulf's true love, but I did make him a 12 Day's of Christmas mini book as part of the Winter Book Swap...


It is made from die cut chipboard and water colour paper.  For the covers, I decorated them with layers of paint, a music note motif stenciled on with gel medium, washi tape, and decorated die cut baubles.  I riveted and glued them onto the spine.

The inside pages are water colour paper that I stamped with the 12 days of Christmas, and decorated with inking, paint, and microcrystalline wax.




I had wanted to do something like this for awhile and this was my excuse to finally do it - a holiday mini book.  I added an eyelet and ribbon to make it something that could hang too.

There is a heck of a lot more pictures on my blog if anyone wants to see since I went through all the 12 days.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
