Domino Book – Flight of the mini bee

Hi everyone

Firstly, thank you to everyone who left comments on my last post and on face book.  Your comments are truly appreciated.

Today I wanted to share a little domino book I made.

I love making these.  They are really easy and I always find them to be a little therapeutic as with all crafting.

I covered two dominos with mulberry paper using mod podge or modge podge as I always thought it was called!! lol!

When the glue was dry, I stamped the little leaf design on each outside edge (the flat side without the dots) of the domino and added a bit of distressing ink to the edges.  I give it a quick brush over with another coat of mod podge to seal the ink.

I edged the outer edges of the dominos with gold pen and added a couple of peel offs.

 I cut a piece of card 28cm (this is the length and can be anything you choose) by 4.5 cm (the height of the domino).

I then repeat stamped and colored the elegant boarder the length of the card.

I then stamped and colored the little bees. When they were dry I covered them with diamond glaze.

Halfway through making this I decided I wanted some sort of edge, larger than the dominos.

I glued several book pages together until it was the size I wanted, approx. 29cm x 6.5 cm.  I then glued my stamped piece of card onto the book pages.  I folded 1/2 c.m of the book page over the bottom edge of the stamped card to give a nice finish. I then gave both sides a coat of mod podge.

I trimmed the pages to size and ruffed up the edges.

I scored lines along the length of the stamped piece of card every 2. cm.  The 2cm being just smaller than width of the domino.

I glued a piece of card (2.3cm x 4.5cm) to each of the inside edges (the side with the dots on) of the dominos.

I then attached the ends of the concertinaed card to the card on the inside edge of the dominos using diamond glaze but any strong glue will do.

I then just used a piece of ribbon to secure close.

Stamps used:  Chocolate Baroque – small bees from Honey Bee and the leaf and boarder from Elegant Edges.

Just to share, if you like these little books, you may like this little book here  or this one here.

Well that is all from me today.  Thank you for stopping by.  It is always great to have your company.
