Time to share he next thing I made with my GRAPHIC 45 HALLOWE'EN WONDERLAND papers.This time it's a little book, I had great fun making this, I need to get back to making more books!

The covers are made from recycled covers from an old book, cut to size and decorated.

The pages are pieces from the Graphic 45 papers cut and glued to card for extra weight and stability, each page has a little tab added

Close-ups of a couple of page spreads

The pages were then sewn into the spine.

I have to say I was really pleased with the way this came out and I was sad to see it wing it's way to THE STAMP ATTIC where it now lives! The GRAPHIC 45 papers are available from THE STAMP ATTIC

Sue! This is really stupendous!

We can't honestly tell that you're an Alice in Wonderland, fan ;)
I can't believe all of the things that you've come-up using these papers. They're on my wish list now.

Thanks for showing us how it was made. You're the Queen of handmade books.

Sue, I love your book!
Must take a leaf out and do one.
I'm a bit 'flat' today, but you are firing me up a bit.

'Alice' has so much potential, you should start a challenge site!!!

I can tell you like these papers Sue as they have inspired you to make so many inspiring pieces and this book is no exception. I love the stitching on the spine, very effective as are the tabs. You will be needing another pack of these papers soon LOL. See you soon, Tracy x
