I had a special order for a Mardi Gras book. Ordered the paper and embellishments from Scrappersaurus Scrapbooks, Metarie, LA. They have everything you need to make layouts, books, whatever you can dream up for the Mardi Gras season. They're online store is exceptional.
The book turned our beautiful. There are a lot of very unique things about the book I would like to show you.
1. Photo 1 and 2 show the cover of the book. The mask is handmade and the feathers added. On the side of the book are green, purple and gold beads. The hanging coins are attached to the rings as well. Stunning!
2. Photo 4 shows pages 3 & 4 of the book. The mask is part of the handmade paper. On page 4 I cut around the mask creating a space where I could attach the gold paper underneath. Just slide your photo in.
3. Photo 5 highlights pages 5 & 6. Both pages have a photo album that pulls out and is accordion style for about 14 to 16 photos and/or journaling.
4. Photo 6 is the last 2 pages of the book. Envelope, trolley which open up to a photo mat and die cut ribbon.
Have a great day. Until next time,
