I make a collection of cards for a few of my closest friends and family for gifts. Then I always think that they'd like some verses to go in the cards. In the past I've made many different types of portfolios, boxes etc. to hold these gifts of card assortments and verses. I've put the verses in little envelopes, but for my BFF's birthday in the past, but her supply is running low, so I thought I'd give her a refill. I decided to do something different this time. My blogging group, Paper Pajama Party, has a challenge this month to make a book. I love making hand-bound books!! So my BFF is getting a book of verses this time.
I used cardstock (Stampin Up, Red Rose) for the cover and the back with some decorative paper from K & Company. The embossing folder for the cover is from Stampin' Up. I made the envelopes from double sided cardstock (K & Company). To make the envelopes I followed Shirley's directions on the Impression Obsession website. Then I just bound it with my trusty old spiral binder.
My old binder full of verses, greetings, sayings and poems.If you'd like some verses, I've put them on Box to share with you. I noted the author of a verse IF I know them. I would gladly give credit if I knew the authors of any of the others.
