Purple is a special color to me; my husband and I share a love of the color, and he even wore a purple suit for our wedding! I decided to use the Book Stamp by Sentimental Susan to make this small book box.
SVG Attic's discontinued Nevermore set (if anyone knows where I can purchase this file or something similar, please leave a comment). I love the scored page pieces! Used a purple cardstock for the binding, and covered it with a burlap-patterned paper. I inked the paper with Victorian Violet Brilliance pigment ink from Tsukineko.
I made the sentiment in InDesign and heat-embossed it in purple on a shiny white paper. I inked the piece with the same violet ink that I used for the burlap-patterned paper. The book digi stamps were colored with Copics and place on top of the piece. I used an embossing tool to create little lines on the books' pages.
I wrapped a striped grosgrain ribbon around the box, adhering it only to the front so that it would unwrap. To secure it, I used a tiny key charm from Cousin/Designs By Me. I put a little glittered flower on the ribbon's end-knot.
I wanted to be able to keep charms in the box, so I made a cover for the interior box. I used two magnet strips to keep it closed, and added another tiny key.
