"Starbucks Coffee Sleeve Recipe Book"!!

Hello everyone!

This project is my Wild Orchid Crafts November DT challenge. It is being posted late due to some technical issues I've been having, so I apologize...I also apologize that I don't have the video tutorial on it...the hard drive on my MAC gave out and I lost everything including the clips of my making it and a few other videos:(  It's getting replaced so I'll be on another computer with a different movie editing program for a little while. Needless to say, I'm a little sad, but the projects must go on! :)

Now to share my project! Our challenge was to create a recipe box....I stayed in the recipe theme, but made a little festive booklet instead!! So, I used 6 coffee sleeves from Starbucks and did a white wash to them along with edging them with gesso. I then used some Graphic 45 paper for the pops of color then embellished with tons of Wild Orchid Crafts products 
(some are now discontinued, my apologies but I gotta use what I have)! 
Links to most items will be listed after the pictures below and 
I'll add other products I used as well!

Here is my intro video:
Thanks for peeking in!!

For those of you who don't know what these sleeves look like, 
here it is before I altered them!!

 I used 7 Gypsies cable rings, these are very cool to use and look it too!
The inside pages are basically the same except that 
I changed the LO of the elements:)
The backsides of the sleeves have a paper doily or 1/2 heart 
with flowers and flourishes...then the fronts 
of the pages have an oval matte (cut from G45 paper) then 
a spellbinders die cut from white card stock where I did a stamped 
collage on them of Christmas images then put up on dimensional foam stickers, lace behind it, a seam binding bow and poinsettias I put together!

Here's the 2nd page..

Close up's of the inside:
 From the internet I found several recipe's of Starbucks Coffees 
and printed them off onto white card stock.
I printed a few I've tasted and some I was wanting to try!

 I added the titles on a banner die and 
adhered them to the front of the booklet and on tabs 
so I can see them and find them without 
pulling them all out.
 Here's the inside!
