Handmade Book with matching Bookmark

Hi Friends,
Here is a handmade book with a matching bookmark. As this is the month of December- 'The winter season'  , I choose the theme as snow. I think Book and Bookmark is one among  the best set of 2 creations which complements each other.

I collected few leftover sheet in my old books and pinned them together. For the cover of the book I took 2 thick cardboard and covered with handmade blue paper.

I placed the pinned sheets in between these boards and made it like a book. Then I decorated the book by spraying white paint. I added Vellum, Quilled snowman, sentiment in the punched flowers and a pretty snowflake.

Made a matching bookmark. I made a paper cutout of a snowflake and pasted it to the bookmark. Also made a cute little quilled snowman for the bookmark.

This is the snowflake :)

Here are few more pictures:
