How to make a Book Card

Hello everyone, today I have something different to share with you all.

I recently won some lovely craft supplies from Making Cards Magazine, after they featured some cards I made using papers from their March issue. I was so happy when I saw my cards in this month issue, it’s a great feeling when you win something!

I got some, dies, washi tape, decoupage paper & some Hunkydory card making kits.

I decided to use the Hunkdory product first as its something I haven’t used for a very very long time.

I decided to use the decoupage in a different way and make these pretty Book Cards.

These make perfect cards for any book lover as I’ve filled then with bookmarks or you can make it into a mini album.

As I mentioned in my tutorial I’m not a huge fan of this decoupage style but after using it this way I really like it and really enjoyed making these.

To make these you will need…

1 piece of 8.3/4 x 6 white card for the main case.

Score along the 8.3/4 side at 4.1/8 & 4.5/8.

1 piece of 4 x 5.3/4 white card for your page.

2 strips of 1/2″ x 5.3/4 white card to attach the page.

Score at 1/4″ right down the middle.

2 mats for the front and back 4 x 5.3/4.

2 mats for the inside front and back 3.7/8 x 5.3/4.

2 mats for the page 3.5/8 x 5.1/2.

1 strip for the spine 3/4″ x 5.7/8.

I used a selection of Hunkydory decoupage sets from the Primrose Lane collections.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.

Like I said this is a very different style for me but I ended up really liking them and will certainly look at these differently in the future.

The layouts for these are endless and you can add as many pages as you like.

I hope you like these and give them a go too. Remember to share all your makes over on my Facebook page.

Happy crafting and have a lovely weekend.
