White Christmas Star Book

This looks stunning but is actually quite easy to make once you have done your cutting out accurately.
So starting with the cutting. you need
5 x A4 Whisper white cut to 17cm x 14cm
5 x A4 Soft Sky to 19cm x 14cm
5 x A4 Lost Lagoon 20cm x 14cm
5 x A4 Night of Navy 16cm x 14cm.

I used the White Christmas stamp set as it lends itself to making 5 different pictures.
Starting with the whisper white card Stamp the trees onto the centre of each piece. Add the other items to each page until you have 5 pictures with as much detail as you want.

Score the white, soft sky and lost lagoon down the centre.

Now to put it together......
Fix tape to the front edges of each sheet of Lost Lagoon, carefully fix the soft sky to the tape, ensuring the front edges are level. Add the white in the same way. You should now have 5 little books, Join these 5 books together, gluing them together very carefully to ensure all front edges are level.

Use the star edge punch along the edges of the navy then die cut a cycle out of the centre. Fold and score the navy at 2cm intervals giving 2 valley and one mountain fold. Add this to the front of each picture.

To make the cover, cover a piece of card 10cm x 14cm with some dap. Lay ribbon around the book and tie in a bow. Stick the covers over the ribbon ensuring the ribbon over the spine allows the book to close.

Decorate the front.

These are my pages. It looks like I have cut a heart shape out but it is a circle!

This last picture is my cover. I have decorated it with the stars that come out of the edge punch.
