GingerChef Recipe Book--Artful Sentiments byKimm BT Copic Challenge

This was so much fun to make, I really contemplated what to do with the brown earth tones that were the copic color challenge this week. I looked through my flowers, if I did them brown, they would look familiar to me but maybe no one else would like them:). I was about to give up and while surfing the web at some of my favorite sites I went to Dustin Pike's site, I saw this cute Gingerbread chef and knew it was perfect, since it was a free download, even more perfect.

The image was colored with the copic markers that I had E31, E35, E33 and E37

The candy cane rope was created using a red and a white piece of tiny rick rack. I just braided them around each other and stapled them under the buttons.

The file folder is a Quikutz die that I really like to make these tiny books, the pages were sponged and then bound together with jewelry jump rings that I had in my stash. You need to make sure that they are big enough to tie the assorted colorful ribbons around them and not impede the book opening.

I bought a Just Rite alphabet set last week and that is what I used for the words. I usually print out what I want on the computer but that wastes a lot of cs unless I print a whole bunch of phrases at the same time and I never seem to size them right the first time :( so I have to reprint them a couple of times to get it right, with the Just Rite letters.

Hope you like the project today, be sure to check out the other DT members blogs for their samples. Have a great week-end. See you tomorrow.
