G45 Couture Sewing bookends with a tiny mini album and bookmarks

Hi everyone :-)
Had so fun making this bookends and made another for a friend that like sewing. They can also be used as configuration boxes
Used the beautiful Couture papers from Graphic 45 again. Tim Holtz dress form and ornate frame die, sewing die from Accucut craft,  Baby frame die and scissor from Marianne design. Used Treat bag armoire from Sizzix to make top.

They can also be used as configuration boxes :-)

Papers can be found at Kreativ Scrapping


Here is the link to my blog post tutorial for the bookends measurements,
And youtube video,

Made some pleated paper trim from the paper line.
For this bookends I used 4 x 1 inch paper. Scored at every 1/2 and 1/4 inch and folded.

Mirror sheet is from Tim Holtz.
Flat back pearl string is from Lavish laces and here is the link,

Can also be displyed like this.

The tags on top can be taken out for some journaling.

On the sides there are fastened 2 book marks with magnets.

Because of the magnets they will stay in place on the page.

There is a tiny mini album in the drawer for small photos or journaling.

Front of the cover. The corners are made from a punch from Martha Stewart.
Cover binding and magnetic closure made out of washi tape from G45

Inside the tiny album. Tags punch from Fiskars.
