Book of Laces - Off the Page

 A month or so ago I came up with the idea to make a Book of Laces, and I literally mean a 'book of laces' and since then I have made four of these wonderful projects.

I like to give lace as gifts or include them in swaps that I'm doing and I though it was a lovely way to package up some lace prettily without it weighing too much because we all know what the postage costs are like these days!

I used the Kaisercraft 'True Romance' collection papers for everything, you only need four sheets of 12x12 paper and that will give you the covers, four insert spool pages and a stick pin holder at the back. Only the spine is made from light weight chipboard.

To decorate my little book I went around some of the flower images with clear stickles and then used a gorgeous collection of  flowers on the front cover, added a little beaded trim and some pink wheat spray all from Mad About Scrappin and finished it off with a couple of butterflies cut from the Kaisercraft 'Enchanted Garden' glittered butterfly paper. Some gorgeous seam binding, also from Mad About Scrappin was used to tie the book closed.

On the inside, I ran some pretty lace down the inside cover to hide the joins and a little beaded trim and filled the book up with some very pretty laces all held nicely with the crystal topped pins from the Mad About Scrappin Store :)

I hope you like this Book of Laces, I think it turned out incredibly pretty and the lady who received it also loved it :)
