Thinking Out of the Box - Book ATCs - Geisha Themed

A fun take on ATCs is to create a book out of multiple cards.  The Asian inspired ATC book below is titled “Rivers and Mountains” and is made from playing cards.  Each card is attached to another card with jump rings.  When creating the book I first laid out the cards side by side and taped them down with low-tac blue painters tape to keep them in place.  I then collaged, stamped, embossed, and added rub-ons and dimensional embellishments. Next I punch the holes in each card and attached them with jump rings.  Lastly, I decorated the front and added a ribbon to tie the book together when closed.  The book folds like an accordion to close.  This is just one of several ways you can create a book.  To give you lots of ideas I will be posting other types of ATC books throughout the month.
