Begin by taking out the inner chipboard pages of the naked handbag book and then paint the naked handbag book cover (inside and out) with orange acrylic paint. Paint the chipboard pages with the purple pomegranate acrylic paint. Cut out inner pages to go in between the chipboard dividers. I used a light green colored cardstock to create a fun Halloween color palette with the orange cover and purple chipboard pages. Cut the inner pages the same size as the chipboard which is 4” x 7”.
To decorate the front cover, I used the polka dot patterned paper from the Hallowe’en In Wonderland paper collection. I cut it straight on two sides and then tore the other two sides. Take a piece of vintage music paper and tear edges so it’s slightly smaller than the polka dot paper. Ink the edges of each piece of paper with black ink. Distress the edges of the book with black ink also. Cut out the Tweedle dee and Tweedle dum image from the Hallowe’en In Wonderland paper pad. Glue the patterned papers onto the cover then glue on the Tweedle dee and Tweedle dum image. Cut a small rectangular strip of the beige text paper from the paper pad and then punch out the green, rectangular clip art image from the Hallowe’en In Wonderland paper pad and glue both onto the cover towards the bottom.
