Allsorts challenge 31

Wow wow you guys, did you come up with some wonderful projects for my theme last week at Allsorts. You are such a talented lot so thanks to one and all.

This week Debs is hosting the theme which is "Anything but a card", another one to get those creative juices flowing.

I am sharing a tag book I made in response to a request for a Birthday card for a secretary named DEB who has a fetish for Post It Notes. Inside the book I have made a little pocket that holds a pack of them. I cut the pages from a 300gsm cardstock on Cricut Plantin Schoolbook and Jasmin welding the elements together on the DS. I cut a replica of each page from Basic Grey DP's and stuck them together before punching the ends and inserting the wire binding using my Zutter.

More roses.......sorry if they are becoming monotonous, some punched leaves pearls and ribbons to decorate.

Thanks for your visit and very kind words--hope you enjoy making the toffee--it's fun and oh, so tasty! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Gosh getting back here before you put your next wonder up! Of course you can have a mask which sort would you prefer (& it will feature flutterbys!)full face, half face, cat face?

In answer to your question the silver lines are the altered glue, the red over the top is the gilding.

Have fun
