Book Pages at Try it on Tuesday

Hello Everyone and thank you for your visit.

Another great challenge at Try it on Tuesday for the next two weeks so I hope you will join in with us. The theme is Book Pages. If you are short of inspiration then my friends on the design team have lots for ideas for you to see when you visit TIOT. You can make anything at all so long as it follows our theme for the challenge.

 I made a birdcage folded book

 I chose a strong, hard backed book and it had a lovely coloured paper stuck to the inside front and back which made a good start for me

This is close-up of the folds-tuck them well into the middle of the pages.

 Carry on folding until you have a half circle of pages. Then cut away the rest of the pages which leaves the spine of the book cover as a stand when you stick it together

Easier to remove a few pages at a time if there are a lot left. Decorate the birdcage before you stick the end pages to the book cover back and front. This way you can tuck in any lace etc. 

Decorate as you wish

This shows how the spine holds book upright as a stand

Better view of 'stand'

Now it's your turn so do join in with whatever ideas you have for book pages.

Love Chrissie xx
