My little one's only request is that it be blue and turquoise, I've used an inking brayer inside with some Tim Holtz distress inks to take the card stock from plain to unique! Then added strips of an old pack of papermania paper -think this is the first paper pack that my other half bought me and i've still got bits of it left although supplies are now getting officially thin!
Inside there is a single sheet of card and then you turn over to the folded paper bag, with card stock on the outer covers and a tag inside, I've opened up both ends of the paper bag book so it takes twice as many tags, I've used three paper bags in total!
The little embellishments are out of a pack I've had forever and never thought I'd use they were in a travel pack of papers I bought, it's amazing how by cutting them, inking them and popping them on the page they really make a difference!
I'm really pleased with the front page, I wanted it to look slightly grungier and make it look like the stamped parts of passports where the ink is never quite the same, overall really pleased with it - although he refuses to let me put ribbon on the wire! I'll take away a writing pad, let him write up on that and then stick with DST that I'll take with me, we'll probably add some postcards as well!
