I have a fun little Halloween zig-zag book project to share today. I call this a "fun" project because anything goes! It could be any color or size and the inside could contain anything that suits your fancy. I decided to use a fabulous green and yellow paper from the Halloween Paper Stash called Abandoned. I'm just going to say, buy two packs because you'll need more of this paper than you think you might. Super cool designs and colors, from pink and purple to green, black and orange!
I started with one of the Vignette boxes that is 2 3/4 x 4" and the matching Vignette panel (for the lid). So in theory, if you have one set of Vignette Boxes and 1 set of Vignette Panels, you could create 4 books in 4 sizes.
I cut a piece of the Distress Heavystock... this piece wraps from the back of the Vignette Box, up the left side and over the lid. For my project, the measurement was 7 x 4" - you will have to adapt that measurement depending on the size of the box and matching lid. I adhered the green patterned paper to the Heavystock (on the backside of the white piece shown here) and scored it where the paper turns a corner to create the spine of the book.
Maybe this will help - this is what it looks like finished. The lid opens like a book and the paper spine is not attached to the box.
I smeared Opaque Crackle Texture Paste over the edges of the cover and let it dry before adding Distress Crayon to age it. The owl has been inked with Gold and Mushroom Alcohol Ink and then splattered with black paint using the Distress Splatter Tool (love that tool).
Now carry on,
