It is finally here - My 12 Days of Christmas pop up Book
I have finally finished the instructions for my 12 Days of Christmas Book. This was a book I made last year for Christmas.
As soon as I saw Graphic 45's 12 days of Christmas collection, I knew I wanted to make a pop out book. For a pop out book you need lots of images you can cut out and make pop. This collection has 6 pages full of beautiful images. My scissors worked overtime, cutting and snipping out all the beautiful pieces. It took me about 6 hours to design and make the book. I don't plan my books, but rather just start cutting and creating. I did about 4 workshops - teaching this very special book.
Once it was shown on Graphic 45's blog I started receiving emails from people wanting to know how I made it. So about 3 months ago I decided to write instructions for it. It has taken weeks and weeks to get all the photo's and the step by step instructions done. I have had to make two books. One for all the photo's and the second one checking the instructions. I still love this book and it is my best book to date. The pop up's work so well - thanks to Graphic 45's amazing papers. I was hoping to get it done in time for anyone wanting to make it in time for Christmas, but it just took too long to do.
Just click on Jane Tregenza's Kits and you will see it there. They only have about 50 kits for sale.
The instructions for this project is 20 pages long, it's nearly a book on making the book! So the instructions are on a CD, this means you can see it on a computer and enlarge each page to see the step by steps better. Please let Seriously Scrapbooking know if you want a printed copy rather than a cd.
There are 6 pop up pages and you can look at it as a book by turning each page and pulling the flap at the bottom of each page down. Or you can stand the book up and pull it out and have it as a display piece to put out at Christmas time. I have designed it so you can place a photo on the back of the pages. I suggest that you take a photo of everyone who spends Christmas day with you for the next 7 years. This is sure to become a family treasure and something that everyone will enjoy looking at it.
So now I can start working on the next book. I have a book going on line every month for the next 4, so stay in touch to find out what they will be.
May you all have a wonderful time with family and friends over the holiday season. Special thoughts for those who will be alone at this special time.
with hugs to you all
