Flower Books with D2D

 Hope you  are having a peaceful Memorial Day weekend.

'Big Bloom' is the Delightful Inspirations free digi this week. I printed it out big and small on white card stock and on copy paper--wanted to make 'books' for Lily. She will want one for her 'puppies', too. They are her imaginary friends. They cause her to get in trouble, they always get what they want...'my little puppies are hungry'...'my little puppies are so tired'...'my little puppies love sparkles'...need I say more? Two 'books' it is then.
Use the one copy with the plain paper to cut out about 8 layers to form the inside of your 'book', staple before cutting. For the front and back I stapled one edge to the back piece of card stock and then cut.This makes the cutting out so much more even. Once the coloring was done with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS I 'put the books together, added some scraps of ribbon and then went about adding the Stickles.
Lily will be delighted to see these and write in them! I wonder what her puppies will think...can the puppies write and draw?
Guess I'll find out on Wednesday.

Thanks for coming by!

I'm pretty sure puppies can write and draw, but I'll wait to hear what Lily says! These are great Joanne, you are so creative! Love the idea of a shaped book. You DGD will be so happy, especially with the stickles on it!
