As promised, I have completed (amidst a hideous onslaught of a nasty COLD, mind you) the double waterfall album. I am such a fan of the sweet images of Dolly Dingle in her Halloween costumes! And so, inspired by Dolly, I decided to make the album all about Trick or Treat!
But first things first: The cover:
Of course I inked, grunged, and Stickled everything! (It made the cat's eyes glow yellow...how cool?!)
And I even filled the Trick or Treat bag on front with images of vintage candies! (Some are adhered to the book and some are loose and can be taken out)
An d now the first waterfall: I simply glued an image of vintage candy to the front of each flap!
I made sure the images were printed large enough for the name to be seen under the flap...
Waterfall Number Two: These are candies I remember getting as a little girl while out Trick or Treating...my dad always called "dibbs" on the Hershey bars!
And then, because the history of each kind of candy is (I think) really interesting, I created a "history tab" for each of the candies pictured in the waterfalls...
When pulled, each tab reveals a brief history of the candy bars in that waterfall. This particular tab is a brief history of Butterfinger.
I will, of course, embellish the binder rings with ribbon, ricrac, and anything else I happen to have laying around. One can never hanve too many embellishments! At least, not in MY house!
A shout out to my friend Sandy, who supplied me with many of these vintage candy images! This book is for you, dear friend! I hope you like it!
Be back soon with something fun!
