Altered Book

 A few years ago my Daughter In Law's mother gave me a book that the pages were folded to spell my name. My very dear friend Jill saw it and loved it so I thought I would do one for herI have to admit that I did not do the folding of the book don't think I would have the patience to do it
This is the book  folded and undecorated

 This is the book decorated

I covered the book with wallpaper added a strip of hessian on the spine unfortunately I didn't take a photo of that I then put two strips of crochet tape front and back, made the flower with hessian and paper from another book, cut the leaves on the cuttle bug with papers from my stash, added beads and gems  for the butterfly trail, Hessian string wound around the book and tied up in a bow, I tied a knot in the string before tying the bow so it wouldn't untie, added some little butterflies to inside of book

was rather pleased with how it turned out and Jill loved it

have put it in this challenge
