New Book

A few months back I purchased a new Sizzix die that cut out a small album cover from chip board.  I made one with collaged book pages and napkin butterflies.  I have finally used the cover to create a pop-up book.  I have always wanted to make one!  
Front and back Covers.  The rayon dyed ribbon is from Ribbonsmythe.  The cover was described in a previous post.  The letters are cut from a Sizzix alphabetical die.
The inside cover.  The quotes are from a stamp set from Stamp Camp.  The pages are watercolor paper, stenciled and colored with various inks. The butterfly ribbon is cut from Vellum with a Martha Stewart punch.  The butterfly is a Cuttlebug die.

The first Popup page.  I wanted it to rise when the page was opened but not too much.  The cutouts are textiva film. The bottom die cut is Spellbinders The Gilded Life.

A between page.  The large butterfly and word are cut from vellum and embossed, Sizzix Tim Holtz dies.  The small butterflies are also from a Sizzix original die.  The smaller butterflies around the word are a Martha Stewart Punch.
This popup was adapted from a video I saw on Faceboo, I added the butterflies flying out of the flowers.k.  The butterlies are from various punches.  The little paperdolls are a Dienamics Die.

Another between page with another velum butterfly (Sizzix) and word.

I got the idea for this pop-up from the coin envelope book I made a while ago.  If I were to do it again, and I probably will!- I would ink the inside of the embossed butterfly and put the decorative side of the backing shape facing forward.  The butterflies were cut from a Sizzix Tim Holtz die.  I cut 5 and cut them down in size which probably wasn't necessary, but it works.
Inside Back cover, more vellum and punches.  Just need to sign it now.
