Friendship Book














































I was asked to make this by a stranger for a mutual friend who is emigrating on the 13th of this month, it had to be small enough to fit in her hand luggage. At approx 5" x 3" x 1/2" I think it fits the bill.
It's made from a strip from 12x12 cardstock, scored, folded & decorated with stamped swirls, stitching a chipboard letter, silk flower & brad. It has small money envelopes inside to hold the individual tags. I used a range of papermania mulberry flowers, & silk flowers. The quotes were all found on the net & printed off onto plain white paper, which then I coloured with chalks. The tags were cut from cream card to fit the envelopes & again coloured with chalks to match the theme.
I really enjoyed making it.
