My Little Book of Witches

I decided to make an accordion fold book for my witch ATCs.  These are the easiest books to make.  I’ll post a tutorial for you next month.  The overall size of the book is 3 ¾” x 5 ¼” x 1 ½”.
The spine is made of bookbinding tape that I’ve stenciled and embossed.
Inside the pages are made of black cardstock and the dimensions of each page are 3 ½” x 5”.  This is the perfect size for ATCs; particularly ones that overflow the edges like mine do.  I added decorative paper to each page to coordinate with the ATC.  On the right side of the page I attach the ATC using glue dots.  I use glue dots because they hold well and you can remove them without damaging the art.  On the left side I have a witches hat with the title of the art and the artist name.
While I was making one of these for myself I made one for you (minus the ATCs).
This one is a TREAT!  The winner is:
Rhea (Starrgazer Creates)

This is just lovely, I like putting ATCs in little books, so much nicer than just storing them in fgolders hidden away. Look forward to seeing the tutorial.
