a cover up

I was asked to spruce up the cover of a recipe book for Mixgruppen. :) Since it'll be handled by a lot of people I needed the decorations to be sustainable. I ended up with a rather flat decor, covering the whole thing with several layers of varnish to make it tough enough. A striped paper for base, and on top of that the festive row of pennants, cut from another designer sheet aswell as the little birdies. Sadly it's not really showing on these photos how glittery and cute they are. :/

A bunch of colorful ribbons tied along the spine add a whimsical tone to the otherwise kinda flat layout, corresponds nicely to the pennants  and are eaisly replaced when worn out.

A closeup on the 'title' tag, matted with light blue paper to match the flower. The top flower and center brad is btw the only thing not completely flat on the LO. It needed something to 'pop'. :)


The back. My only real reson for decoration here (besides the chance to put my blog name on it ;)), was the ugly barcode. It bugged me.
So, a scrap paper, a penguin and a mini pennant later; ugly barcode is no more. :)

Oh ja, the three flaps on the side are index cards for 'food', 'sweets' and 'other good stuff'. There's room for two more categories, but I thought it to be enough like this. I later laminated them for sustainability.

I've tracked down some blog challenges for this also:

Charisma cardz - Anything goes
Totally papercrafts - Glitter it
Wee memories - Brads, buttons or bows
Simon says stamp - Anything goes
