Secret Garden Star Book

Today I'd like to share a new project I just completed - it is a star book

A star book is a type of accordion book.  Each page has multiple layers that vary in length and thus form a multi-layered star when the book is open and the covers are placed back to back.

This book features the Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper collection.  I used both the 12x12 and 8x8 pads to create the project.

The project also features Spellbinders Shapeabilities dies - four of the pages have a panel created from one of these dies using a special cutting technique to create a mirror image or extended diecut panel.

I videoed the construction of the book as I went along, so if you are interested in making this project yourself you can use those videos as a guide.  More on that at the end of the post.
