While teaching at a scrapbooking crop in Germany, I stumbled across a fabulous new “paper” called Snappap. They also call it “vegan leather”, because it reacts like leather, but it is made of paper and synthetics. You can emboss it, sew it, stamp on it, color it and much more. I got myself some pieces and created a minibook right the next day! 🙂 If you want to see more pictures of the inside, please check my blog.
Time: 30 min (after sewing)
After folding and sewing all the papers together, I started to pick out the main pieces to decorate the cover page of my “leather” minibook. I love the look of white on dark, therefore I decided to use white embossing powder for the background and on the title.
I stamped the feathers with Versamark translucent ink and dumped the embossing powder all over it. I like to use a soft brush to remove all excess before working with my heat tool.
I chose to use a wooden tile for my title piece. I covered half of the wooden title with adhesive tape then pressed the Versamark inkpad directly onto it. After removing the tape I added white embossing powder, which then only sticks on half of the embellishment. Heat.
Arrange your pieces as desired and adhere to cover.
