You are a Blessing Book- Orange Truffle Trendy Twine

Hey Crafty Friends-

I'm back with another project for Trendy Twine. This month's featured twine is Orange Truffle. I LOVE THIS COLOR! I think this is my favorite project I have done as part of the Trendy Twine Team. So let's get to it!

This mini book was made as a gift to my husband for our family to share special photos this season. This book was so easy to make. Here's how I did it...

I started with a craft cardstock base measuring 4" by 8.5". I scored it at 4" and 4.5" creating a 4" mini book with a spine of .5". I inked the edges with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I cut the patterned paper at 3.5" x 3.5", inked edges in brown and glued down. I used the Belinda's Borders stamp set from Lawn Fawn to stamp the stitching in brown around the edges of the book. I used the Harvest Season stamp set also from Lawn Fawn to stamp the sentiment in the center of the cover. I cut the frame from brown glitter cardstock using my Cricut and popped it up on foam dots. The pumpkin is also from the Harvest Seasons set. I stamped it on craft cardstock and colored with Tim Holtz markers. I cut it out, popped it on foam dots, and embellished it with a double bow of Orange Truffle twine. The twine closure was done by gluing down a double strand of twine on on each side of the inside cover, making sure they are even so they can later be tied in a bow to close the book. I then cut two craft cardstock squares just under 4" to glue to the inside of the book and cover the twine.

This really was so fast and so fun! I plan on making more of these tiny books for my family members for every season. I hope I have inspired you to give it a try. Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. Please visit the Trendy Twine blog and join in this months challenge. It's a lot of fun.

 Have a great crafty day and come back often for more crafty inspiration!
