Marie at the Opera Accordion Folded Book – Designed for Alpha Stamps

I designed this accordion folded book for Alpha Stamps.
The bookbinding tape that I used on the spine was originally white.  I tea dyed the tape to give it a more antique look.  The tape lost some of its tackiness when I soaked it in the tea so I had to add some additional adhesive.  The design on the spine is a rub-on transfer.
Alpha Stamps Products Used:

Young Marie Collage Sheet
Paper Doll Fans Collage Sheet
