A Good Book

The Craft Barn has revealed the next letter in the Alpha Challenge, which will run throughout the year.

The next alpha is B.

This is the front of my tag.


I made a little book, which is 3cm by 4cm.


The book is held in place by ribbon & fabric fastener, decorated with a button.


Inside I used the Brianna bird paper ...


and when you turn the title page you find the dictionary definition.

The original book spine is being used as a bookmark.


This is the reverse.

"A good book draws you in and refuses to let go 
until the final page is turned."

I have used patterned papers Life's Journey Pansy & Brianna by K & Company, Distress Ink (antique linen) & images of a Baedeker book from the Graphics Fairy.
