Butterfly Botanicals Book

Have you been watching the new online crafting channel The British Craft Network? It's the first British internet TV channel run by crafters for the benefit of crafters. There is no hard sell, just demos by some of your favorite crafting companies.
The other day I showed some samples I'd made for the first Kraftyhands show on the British Craft Network featuring the gorgeous Butterfly Botanicals CD. Today I have a little book I made using various elements from the CD.
I printed a backing paper from the CD twice and glued them back to back. I then scored them to create a spine. I added black glitter to the butterfly on the front.

I used one of the postcard embellishments for the first page.

I printed one of the text papers a few times and glued them back to back to create the pages.

I decorated the pages with butterfly toppers and die-cuts.

I used Distress Inks around the edges of the pages and toppers and added some little punched flowers.

I decorated the last page with another postcard and glued the pages inside the book cover.

I enjoyed making this little book and I think it's a lovely way to show off some of the beautiful butterflies on the Butterfly Botanicals CD. Have you ordered your copy yet?
I hope you've managed to log on and watch the shows on the British Craft Network channel. It's a fantastic way to watch your favourite craft companies demonstrating their goodies.
