Gwynn book

One of the things I donated to the NLR Friends of Animals Auction was a custom folded book.  This was a book I would fold from a photo of the customer's choice.  A sweet woman wanted to have a book folded of a photo of her sweet rescue dog named Gracie who had recently crossed the rainbow bridge.  Here is the photo she gave me.

here is the cover of the book.  I found some awesome "rainbow bridge" dog memorial papers on Etsy at Vizual Storm.  

There is some burlap ribbon running down the spine.

Here is the actual folding.

And here is the inside of the book cover using more of the paper from Vizual Storm.

The book I used happen to a crossword puzzle dictionary.  I went through the book and chose 7 different words to describe a dog.  I found "Faithful", "Friend", "Gentle", "Love", etc.  and highlighted each word in order of the rainbow colors.  I let the customer know she could thumb through the book and find the words.  She seemed to love it.

Someone I know wanted a folded book from me, so when I saw this horizontal pattern for Sylvester the cat from Looney Toons I decided this would be the perfect book to fold for this person.

monster birthday

I made this cute monster card for my grandson's 2nd birthday.  He loved the googly eye, but the "celebrate" kind of got torn off.  I suppose it's a good thing when he wants to peel off something.  He is really into the lift a flap books lately, so maybe he thought it was a flap!
