Little Spooky Ladies Book

I've been doing some vintage/antique image searching lately and keep stumbling on little bits of inspiration. One amazing bit I came across was from a medieval manuscript, a man reading a heart shaped book. This led to finding real examples!

Swoon right?!

But it's not hearts and love song season. It's spooky season, so let's get a tad creepy.

I had coffin shaped chipboard bits on my worktable from the AlphaStamps *Twilight Kit so ran with the orginal inspiration to create a little chipboard coffin book. I kept it simple and just bound the pages together with a bit of sports tape.

On the cover of the book I placed a Wide Spider Charm on the end of a snip of  1/16 Inch Black Satin Ribbon. To cover the loop of the charm I added a bit of bling with a sparkly accent.

Inside each page is covered with papers from the Twilight 8x8 Paper Pad and features a spooky little lady.

I particularly like the ladies from the Victorian Bats Collage Sheet .
