G45 Couture bookends with mini albums and bookmarks - WOC DT project

Hi everyone :-)
Made this bookends and tiny mini albums for a good friend and had so fun making them with WOC beautiful flowers:-)
Also made some magnetic bookmarks.
Used the beautiful couture papers from Graphic 45 and made it in a bit moulin rouge style.
The bookends are made out of chipboard and you can find the measurements bellow. Also used Treat bag cover armoire from Sizzix to make the bottom stand and top.Also used Cheery Lynn flourish leaf die,

Here you can see them with some books

Can also be displayed without books for decor.

In the drawer there is place for some magnetic bookmarks.
Drawer pull is from Butter Bee Scraps and here is the link,

Here you can see the bookmark in use.

The bookends can also be displayed as configuration boxes.
Love the beautiful red flowers from WOC and they match perfect with this paper line :-)

Purse and the left frame are magnetic and can be taken off.
Love the off whit papers that can be colored in the color I like to use :-)

Also made some tiny mini album that can be used for small pictures or journaling.
Used G45 new washi tape for the cover binding.
All books are magnetic so they don`t fall of.

Measurements for the base.

Cut 1 inch strips, score at 1/2 and glue them on inside and outside as shown bellow.
I used washi tape around all the edges ( Black on this project )

The drawer is made from  4 x 4  cardstock and score 1/2 inch around. Cut into the sides and glue together.

Case for the drawer. Cut 2 -31/8 x 31/8 chipboard. 2 - 3 1/8 x 3/4  for the sides and  3 3/8  for the front of the drawer.
