I used the awesome Chalk Edgers from Ingvild Bolme and a sweet Shabby Chic decoration Resin designed by Ingvild. It fit's perfectly with the background. I love how it came out.
Since I have the Chalk Edgers from Ingvild Bolme I use them on almost every project. They are great to create a own background, to mix it with other mediums or to give the projects the finishing touches. So many ways to use, it is inexhaustible. You have to try it!!! I would love to buy it here in switzerland or in a germany scrapbooking store. I'm waiting impatiently....
For binding I used the idea from Janna Werner. Just sewing through all papers with sewing machine and used a ribbon to close it.
I also made a card with the same techniques. And I aditional added some washi tape for the background. As a beautiful detail you can see a Vintage Trinkets zipper from Ingvild Bolme.
Here is the video tutorial, have fun and enjoy!
