Make a Christmas Memories Wooden Book

Make a Christmas themed mixed media wooden book using two door hangers.

Paint the door hangers with the maya gold paint.

Place the two hangers side by side and screw the hinge in the middle of them.

Use the script stamp and the embossing powder to decorate the front side of the hanger.

Make the page holders, this concertina folded page holder will be glued to the inside back book cover so the pages can be attached. Cut a 16cm x 6cm piece of the decorated paper. Accordion fold it every 1.2cm.

Turn it at the back and start glueing together the pleats. Set aside for later.

Cut from the paper pad 2 pieces of 14.5cm x 6cm and one 12.5cm x 12cm. Fold the last in half on the long side.

Fold about 2cm the right side of the 14.5cm long paper. Decorate with the ribbon and the wooden embellishments which are painted with the Maya Gold paint.

Turn it around. Place a piece of the jute in position. Glue the flap on top and bottom only, creating a pocket. Stamp a tag, add some ribbon and place it in the pocket.

Glue the folded in half paper onto the left and bottom side, creating a pocket opening on the right. Cut a bit smaller piece of paper, distress it with the gold paint and place it in the pocket. You can add your text here or replace it with another card.

Fold about 2cm the second 14.5cm long paper again on the right side. Add metallic embellishments. Distress a card with gold paint and stamp - emboss it.

Turn it to the other side. Glue top and bottom only of the flap. Stamp a piece of cardstock, add a stamp sentiment and some ribbon. Place the card in the pocket.

On the inside cover glue some paper from the pad and embellish it with metallic stars and a printed digital stamp.

Glue first the accordion shaped paper on the right inner of the hanger and then using two flaps of it glue and hold the pages.

Decorate the front cover with the fabric flower and the metallic embellishments.
