A Book in a book, in a book!

Helllooo Rupa here,

It's Thursday and am here to share a recycled project with you and lots of goodies from Crafters Corner!

A local air trip leaves you with a lot of roasted nut tins and once you are done with eating the nuts...the tins are waiting to be transformed! hers is what happened to one of them...

The title may confuse you but not when you see that the tin is now altered to look like a book and when it opens...there is another book and another! yes...3 books in all!

Here are all the details...
The Spine a piece of canvas cloth that I ran thru a damask embossing folder almost three-fourths and then colored it with shades of yellow and brown acrylics to give a vintage leather look, on the top part of the spine I heat embossed an ornate label and quote from Inkadinkado stamps which says it all.

The  mini album is made with TH Wall flower paper pack and dint even hesitate to tear a page from it to create this mini tag book. I took the ATC page and created mini from this 12X12 beauty! The paper was too good to be altered and I felt it was just screaming for a bit of yellow to be highlighted and so I went with that.

The front cover… and the back cover is made with chipboard from cereal boxes and the spine is a piece of colored burlap from my stash. I have used complimenting papers from DCWV and embossed with TH burlap stencil and sprinkled some gold embossing powder on it!

Some metal book corners and this mini album is ready.
Here are the tags inside the mini, all cut using Joy crafts die and the sentiments all from TH visual artistry. A lovely yellow ribbon keeps the book intact.

From the spine hangs a micro mini book charm along with a few tea pot metal charms.

The book charm…is an inchie to be precise and I enjoyed making this teenie weenie thing!
It actually has some pages inside and some more sentiments. The book is held tight with some twine.

So here is my BOOK in a Book in a book …
Hope you enjoyed reading all of them!!

Here are the list of products that I have used from the store...

Let me know what you recycled today!
I will see you soon after a festive break.
Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali.
Until my next creative journey,
Happy Crafting and recycling.

Golden Love Album using DCWV Espresso Collection

Hi everyone..

A very good morning to all...welcome to crafters corner blog!
I am here with my first post for October month, as you know I am working with DCWV Recollection Signature special and used Bonjour Boutique & Pink Pizzaz collection in my previous posts.
If you have missed it the here is the link

Mini Album Tutorial:

Handmade Cards using Bonjour boutique collection:

And today I have used Espresso collection. This paper pad has beautiful coffee colour and Gold Foiled sheets which are perfect to make real elegant projects. I have made a mini album on 50th anniversary as these papers has most of the golden pattern so they goes very well with your gold theme..
You can also use them for making Photo frames, Shagan Envelopes for wedding etc.

So let's what I have created,

This album is 6x6 inches in size and I made a simple elegant cover as these papers are super gorgeous and I didn't want to hide it's beauty. So let's see how I made the cover page,

I used Nested Circle die to cut these circular patterns from one of the sheet.


Then I popped them up by layering it with 3D foam tape and arranged it on cover. For the 50th Anniversary title, I used mdf cutout and embossed it using perfect medium and gold embossing           powder.

This is one of the sheet from the collection so we can cut out these notecards and use it for journaling and making tuck pockets.

I hanged lots of metal charms and pearl beads on the spine which is giving vintage look to this album and the metal leaf on the cover page is from Prima. This was in silver metal, and i used little bit of inka gold on it.

Now here is the video of the album. I made it quite simple from inside so later on it can be personalised with pictures and messages.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. Do leave some love in comment section.
And wish you a very Happy Diwali in advance!

Money Wraps using Mulberry Flowers

Hello everyone! Welcome to a brand new post at the Crafters Corner blog! Well Its starting to get busy now, the festive season has started and we all are crafting n making some pretty gifts these days! So for today's post I decided to do a tute on some Money wraps! I absolutely loved making them! 
You all know my love for mulberry flowers n Crafters Corner recently got an amzing collection of the flowers in such pretty colours! And not to forget the variety of sizes and styles available! Since I do a lot of bulk orders n need flowers in huge quantites it becomes very difficult for me , but no more Crafters Corner is here to rescue me! The store has bulk quantities available so just place your order and they will be delivered to you! 
  Well now lets get started! Here are few envelopes I created! Do you like them? 

Lets get started 
First take a three fold envelope and mark it as shown in the picture make sure you mark the center, 1inch on each side and then connect the points 

Mark and cut the envelope and this is the shape you will have

Next cut a pattern paper 0.25'' smaller than the base size, keep it under the flap and mark

You will have something like this

Now cut it and stick it to the base, you can add some ribbon for tying the envelope. I am using my favourite paper pad here Hydrangea lawns by Dress my Craft! If you havent tried it yet I strongly recommend you, its a gorgeous paper pad with such lovely prints and the quality of the paper is amazing! 

Now comes the embellishing , I've added a mix of prima flowers and mulberry flowers

 Next I've distressed this small doily die by MFT its a very cute die and looks very pretty! 

Assemble three dies as shown in the picture using some foam tape

Add it to the center and you are done!

I love blingg! So I've added some bling crystals by Kaisercraft! I feel adding bling enhances the look of it! 
Here I've also make the same design in a different colour! 

Lets go to the next one! 

Here I have taken the same base but used the ribbon over the pattern paper , you can insert the ribbon as we did in the previous envelope as well

The layout is very similar to the previous envelope, layer the dies add flowers and bling and you are done! Quick and easy! 

 Now the last envelope has a lot of detailing! Hope you all like it 

Trim down the envelope a little bit and round the edges

Add the pattern paper to the base, both base and top flap need to be covered here

Now I have distressed a doily using worn lipstick and spun sugar 

Cut and overlap two doilies as shown in the picture

Add them to the base like this 

Next I've used this frame and painted it with rose gold paint by Prima. The frame was made using mod podge melter and melts , the mold is by Martha Stewarts, You can find its tutorial in my previous posts. I love making my own embellishments and the molds and melts make it so easy!

Add the frame to a piece of cardstock, pour some glossy accents to the center and add the pearls! I love these hardware pearls by prima , these are the glass pearls and their finish is amazing!

Now add the frame , a sentiment and some flowers and you are done! 

Hope you all enjoyed today's post! Please feel free to ask any questions!
