It's Back to School Time! Welcome to this week's 4 Crafty Chick card challenge! I was asked to be a guest designer for this great group and will be creating four cards for the month of August! I hope you all decide to play along! They have some fun stuff planned... and so do I!
If you were ever trying to think of an additional way to use up your old scraps, turn them into book bindings! This card is 6"x6" and the books are 4.5" long. I used a corner rounder to make the spin and a circle punch to make the 'interior' of the book.
The apple! Well the apple is made by layering 10 3" circles on top of each other. They are glued to each other in the middle and I used a bone folder to fold each one individually. As I was stacking the circles, I cut the bottom of the circle to flatten the bottom and cut into the top of the circle (like you were going to make a heart) to get the top of the apple. The edges were inked with green ink and I added a leave and stem.
Everything was adhered to a piece of embossed cardstock for the perfect 'good luck' as you go back to school!
