I made this little Valentine booklet awhile back, but wanted to pass it along as I think it’s a project worth revisiting. I enjoy making books of all kinds, and this small, intimate book can be used as an informational project or as a heartfelt card for a loved one. In any case, and without any further ado, here’s the book.
This easy to make book was created using just one sheet of card stock that was scored, cut & folded to create the pages & cover of the book all in one. The fabulous background behind the heart was made using a a sponge brush and a very small amount of white glue. I “swished” the brush over the area I wanted to highlight in a very light-handed manner. I then added gold embossing powder and the result is what you see. The heart is an Origami method of paper folding. Each page has a matte of red with a different stamped heart on it and the last page is the sentiment and signature page. The entire book is kept together using a red shiny cord. I punched equal circles from each end and threaded the cord through the holes and tied it off as shown on the picture.
