Floral Freebie Book

A cute cardboard and paper book
I have been on a bookmaking journey, and it has been so much fun!  I covered my first book with Amanda's gorgeous flower paper that is available for FREE to people who read the A.J.'s Digi Shoppe Blog.  I used corrugated cardboard for my front and back covers and some cereal box card for the binding cover.  The spine is a piece of cardstock folded accordian style. The pages were glued directly to the folds of the spine.  I added in cardstock that I colored using distress ink pads to create spaces on the pages to write on.   I removed some pages from a dollar store notepad and attached inside the back cover.  I embellished with paper flower stickers that I distressed with stain and ribbon. I rubbed the whole book down with distress inks to add some character.
