A Book in a book, in a book!

Helllooo Rupa here,

It's Thursday and am here to share a recycled project with you and lots of goodies from Crafters Corner!

A local air trip leaves you with a lot of roasted nut tins and once you are done with eating the nuts...the tins are waiting to be transformed! hers is what happened to one of them...

The title may confuse you but not when you see that the tin is now altered to look like a book and when it opens...there is another book and another! yes...3 books in all!

Here are all the details...
The Spine a piece of canvas cloth that I ran thru a damask embossing folder almost three-fourths and then colored it with shades of yellow and brown acrylics to give a vintage leather look, on the top part of the spine I heat embossed an ornate label and quote from Inkadinkado stamps which says it all.

The  mini album is made with TH Wall flower paper pack and dint even hesitate to tear a page from it to create this mini tag book. I took the ATC page and created mini from this 12X12 beauty! The paper was too good to be altered and I felt it was just screaming for a bit of yellow to be highlighted and so I went with that.

The front cover… and the back cover is made with chipboard from cereal boxes and the spine is a piece of colored burlap from my stash. I have used complimenting papers from DCWV and embossed with TH burlap stencil and sprinkled some gold embossing powder on it!

Some metal book corners and this mini album is ready.
Here are the tags inside the mini, all cut using Joy crafts die and the sentiments all from TH visual artistry. A lovely yellow ribbon keeps the book intact.

From the spine hangs a micro mini book charm along with a few tea pot metal charms.

The book charm…is an inchie to be precise and I enjoyed making this teenie weenie thing!
It actually has some pages inside and some more sentiments. The book is held tight with some twine.

So here is my BOOK in a Book in a book …
Hope you enjoyed reading all of them!!

Here are the list of products that I have used from the store...

Let me know what you recycled today!
I will see you soon after a festive break.
Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali.
Until my next creative journey,
Happy Crafting and recycling.
