Book in a Box...

...that looks like a book (IYKWIM)

This is my first completed (apart from photos) book from the UKS summer minibook event. Surprise, surprise, it is one of Annette's LOL

I decided to go with a wintery theme so that I could use blue & silver and lots of blingy bits.

The box has been kept quite plain as it is made from holographic mirri board. I just covered it with panels of PP from the Daisy & Dandelion Christmas range and a couple of gems. I cropadiled 2 snowflake brads to the cover and attached silver ribbon as a closure.

The inside of the box is lined with more D&D Christmas PP.

I had some blue and silver beads and some pearl snowflakes so I strung them on navy thread and wrapped them around the front panel of the cover on the book. I also made a little dangly to hang from the binding wire.

The pages are white pearl CS and I have kept the decoration very simple. The first page has been punched with the Fiskars Effervesent (sp?) border punch. Each page has just a small PP highlight and a bit of bling.

If the pics are naff it is because my battery died and I was faffing around try to find some with enough charge to take the piccies.

Hope you like my take on your lovely little book Annette.....................
