MCT 3D Wednesday

Welcome to 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time. Thanks for visiting the studio. Today's theme is birthday. Oh goody! Cuz I love parties, don't you!? My project today is this mini book for grandgirl Olivia, who turned 11. Her birthday has passed but she got a cell phone for her birthday and loves taking pics so I know she'll enjoy adding her own photos to this one.

This is how it all started, with a box of my favorite snack {well, an empty box that USED to contain my snack! LOL} and the new MCT tri fold card die.

After cutting and covering all the pages, I bound them with my Bind-it-All, using pink owires. I added ribbons to the binding and made cute charms using MCT scallop circle and heart dies. If she wants to, Olivia can take them off and hang them from her backpack.

This flower is made using the MCT flower die and the sentiment is also MCT.

...and a velcro tab for the closure.

You'll note the cover is longer than the pages so it can wrap around, like a wallet, to close around the book. I used the same tri fold card die, but put my cutting mat not all the way to the end so it wouldn't cut, then flipped the die around and cut the end where I wanted it being sure to run it only part way then backing it out so as not to cut the extra end off that will be the flap.

Ok, let's take a look inside, shall we! There are more pages but I've chosen just a few to share so as not to bore you with a novella sized blog post! ;) Eyeglasses die and sentiment by MCT, sweet face by Peachy Keen.
Cupcake die by MCT, stars are Quickutz.

Clouds and mustache dies by MCT, sentiment also MCT.

Ice cream cone die and sentiment by MCT, winky face by Peachy Keen.

Pocket die by MCT, tickets are Tim Holtz, and cute little clip by Making Memories.

Another mustache for Olivia who LOVES mustaches {like any 11 year old girl would....huh? LOL She cracks me up.} Tag inside pocket is MCT as is the mustache, face again by Peachy Keen.

For the banner I used the starburst from the MCT Banner Kit, but for the flags I wanted something smaller so I used the MCT teeny tag instead. The letters are also MCT stamps.

The balloon. I'm not sure how practical it is, but I thought it might be a cute bookmark for a few minutes. LOL I used cute pink wire from the dollar store and adhered it with Glossy Accents. The balloon is by Quickutz.
