December Daily – cover and close-ups

Lets have a look at a few close up shots and the cover I made for this years December Daily.

I am a big fan of making my own covers and pages for mini books. I began with a card sheet that came with some of my Project Life page protectors.

I cut this down to 6.5 inches. And covered the edges with washi tape. This gives the book a bit more stability and you don’t see the corrugated edges.

For the decoration on the book cover I was inspired by a few images over at Pintrest. This one in particular.

I glittered up a Maya Road chipboard snowflake using glossy accents as the adhesive.

And put the snowflake onto a square velum tag.

Then after choosing a red and white candy cane paper as the left side paper I tried a few options for the right side.

I liked the red best and added white Thickers for the 25.

Then added some rub ons and stamped letters for the rest of the title. I used white Stazon.

Just couldn’t resist putting all the other December Daily’s in the shot to compare them.

Here are a few close up shots of the inside pages.

A glittery Thicker on a vellum tag fixed in place with a star brad.

Using Tim Holtz bauble fragments I adhered some number kraft card with glossy accents and fixed to the page with a heart brad.

Just can’t not put a red envelope in these books. This one has a strip of red sequins added and white stazon stamped number and circle accent.

Vellum tag with glitter numbers tied on with gingham ribbon.

I covered little wooden embellishments, a house in this case, with white Distress ink added some of the same washi I used on the outside edges of the cover and put them onto tiny paper bags. Thought it would be fun to pop a journalling card into the envelope.

And there you have it. All ready for the 1st December.
