Well, it is that time of the year that Christmas and Christmas Scrapbooking thoughts start dancing in my head! At the LSS, we are placing orders for the new Holiday lines and putting older Holiday lines on sale. Last weekend, as I was looking at product left in the store from 2013, the Bella Blvd Christmas Countdown papers called out to me. So, of course, I answered the call. :)
I pulled some of the remaining product and created a little flip up mini book. I love creating these types of books. This one will be a Christmas Countdown flip up book. The inspiration for this book came strictly from the name of the paper line (Christmas Countdown).
For the stand, I went with chipboard. I cut the chipboard into a 3.5 inch width. The chipboard is just about 13 inches long but because I bend it into an "U" shape, it will stand about 5.5 inches tall. The stand has a base with the two sides. I do slightly cut the chipboard to get it to fold at the bottom. I use washi tape to cover the cuts. The washi tape keeps the book back and front from falling apart from the base over time. I painted the chipboard red.
All the pages in the book are 3x5 inches. Small enough to hold a 3x3 photo, or to write favorite christmas memories, or quotes, or just use as a countdown. The kraft number blocks came from an old 2011 Canvas Corp number paper I pulled from the 50% bin. (I love the 50% bins!)
I am happy with this little book and hope it inspires others to go create! Thanks for stopping in for a look at this little Christmas Countdown book!
