Sugarplum Wishes Coptic Book by Paige Evans

Monday, November 27, 2023

 With every scrapbook collection I create a matching coptic book and here is the Sugarplum Wishes edition! 

I have a virtual class teaching how to make coptic books HERE.
I love making these handmade coptic books mostly to look pretty on my shelf :)
You can use them as diaries, "smash books" or art journals, daily gratitude lists, wedding sign-in books, mother-to-be baby shower books, as a scrapbook, making goals & checklists, tracking accomplishments, for instax photos, book reviews, and so much more! I made my December Daily 2017 in one and it's one of my favorite December Daily albums.
I love to try new techniques with the covers - I've painted them, stamped them, covered them with embellishments, rolled flowers, and left them plain. For the covers of this album I wrapped them with Paper 7 and then used my Folded Circle Cut File to make dozens of miniature circles from all the Sugarplum Wishes 12x12 patterned papers.
My favorite part is the exposed binding and tying on charms, beads, stickers, tassels, buttons, sequins, and more as I'm sewing.
On this book I took apart the Tassels with Charms to use as individual pieces and even drilled holes through the Acrylic Sweaters to use as charms. I also placed Mini Puffy Stickers back-to-back and punched tiny holes through them to turn into charms and additionally added Sequins as charms. So many fun bits, pieces & baubles!
After assembling the book I die cut all the Folded Circles, folded them, and used them to cover the covers.
When sewing the book together I used a red/green/white ombre thread for a fun Christmas touch.
I used two of each of the Sugarplum Wishes papers to make the signatures - I just love all the colors and patterns!
This book is 4x6" which is perfect for full-sized photos and smaller memorabilia.
It lays flat when opened which makes it easy to write & create art inside.
There's nothing quite like the feeling of making a cute book completely from scratch! Once you make one, you'll want to make more!
