I wrapped the cover with decorative paper, stamped a pretty label on grey cardstock and attached it with Tim Holtz long fasteners. (I love the colors of his metal elements, and the pewter/silvery ones were perfect).
Glued Tim Holtz paper to the inside to cover the stems of the fasteners, and added a bit of green seam binding to the inside edge. The first page was created with chalk and Making Memories rub-on letters.
And finally, the inside back cover…chalk again, a printout of story quotes and a couple of sweet little bird stamps.
And now will come the hard part: sending it away!
