This tunnel book is the last and the most elaborate of the Alice in Wonderland art I designed for Alpha Stamps. Just as with the Peek-a-boo cards I started with the 4x4 Die Cut Chipboard Frame Set.
Next, I cut two more pieces of lightweight chipboard the same size as the frame set. I then cut holes in the center of the chipboard. In the first piece of chipboard I cut a hole smaller than the one in the frame set and then in the second piece I cut a hole smaller than the first piece. When all three pieces with holes are stacked together it creates a tunnel effect.
I attached the chipboard pieces to each other using cardstock. I cut cardstock pieces the length of the chipboard then make two folds leaving a gap between the folds.
The gap between the folds creates space between the chipboard to accommodate dimensional embellishments.
This is a really simple method for assembling any book.
Now the fun and the challenge begins. The fun in that there are sooooo many surface to junk up; the challenge in how to add items so that you can see them peeking through the holes but not blocking the items peeking out of the next hole. You also have to consider what you can see looking from the front of the book to the back and then looking from the back of the pages to the front of the book.
Below is a “Drink Me” tag I created for the project. Feel free to save it and use it for your art.
