Cut the orange felt about 1 cm larger than the size of the chipboard. Adhere it and decorate with fabric, ribbons, letters and a flower (selfmade with crepepaper).
The first page is covered with fabric (the same way you did the front cover). Then emboider a frame around the outer edge.
On the second page, cut the chipboard card in two pieces and adhere the papers and ribbon. On the left page, stamp the message stamp with black ink. For the right page cut a 'bread tag' using the Cricut. Add your photo and adhesive tape.
For the third page mount chipboard die-cuts from the Art Warehouse, type Harlequin. Smudge it with the orange ink or paint it. Make the dots with the blue soufflepen. Adhere the fabric on the left side, then the moult and the black flower. For the right side adhere the paper, photo, frame, rub on letters and embellishments.
The fourth page is made with old paper, papers, ribbons, a piece of KI pop culture, used as a tab.
Cut the chipboard card on the sixth page into two pieces, at the horizontal line with the pinking scissors. The journaling spot is made on a piece of transperancy, stamped using Staz On Ink.
The letters on the seventh page are made using the Cricut with the Base Camp Cartridge. Add the journaling pads from the Creative Cafe (Creative Imaginations).
For page 8, hand cut a crown a craft knife. Using the cut piece as a template, draw the crown on the fabric (the same size as the page), and cut it out. Adhere the fabric on the page.
The nineth page uses the same crown as a template again, but this time it is used on cardstock.
The last pages are made the same way as the first.
Finally, make 4 holes in each page. When making these holes be sure to check placement on each card before punching. You need to be sure that the pages that were cut in half are independent from each other.
