After folding the book (there are lots of tutorials online to get you started) I sprayed the whole book with Glorious Gold from Oak House studio.
Using the Fiskars AdvantEdge ironworks cartridge I cut the bottom border out using gold card.
For my focal point I cut a bird using the Fiskars Fuse bird die with a letterpress plate from self adhesive cork.
Then I added leaf vine ribbon
To decorate I used white flowers from Samaflora. I chose white as I wanted to have a play spraying and painting them myself. The small flowers were on wires, which meant I could slide them into a fold and glue them in place.
I have always loved blue poppies (a happy memory from my childhood).
For the hanging loop I used a large bead and a bead cap on wire
The finished decoration
There are a few butterflies in places as I felt the need to add butterflies (one of my favourite embellishments.
