Instructions: Choose a book whose shape you like. Glue two long ribbons on the inside of the inside cover. Cut a piece of paper to completely cover the book, taking care to keep a part of the paper that you will fold inwards. Cut two pieces of paper and glue them inside the book, on the covers, in order to hide the ribbon and the turned over strip of paper.

Glue cheesecloth on the cover of your book. Die cut a border with the Sweetheart Borders die in white cardstock and glue on the top of the book.

Stamp your Magnolia flowers with Blackberry Bliss ink onto white flower shaping paper, color the centre and shade the edge with the same color. Also color the back of the flowers. Diecut with the coordinating die. Place facedown into the flower shaping mold, spritz with water and run through the diecutting machine to shape. When dry, give further shape with Deluxe flower shaping kit tools. Glue 3 layers together. In the center of the flowers make a hole and add stamens. (I made 4 big flowers, 2 medium and 3 small). Also stamp and diecut 6 leaves with leaf green. Mount the flowers and leaves together with florist's tape to make a bouquet. Tie a ribbon to your rod.

Glue your bouquet to the left of your oval. Stamp and cut and color fill-in flowers from the Floral Butterfly collection and insert under your bouquet.

Stamp little butterflies and color them with Zig Markers. Glue 2 butterflies on each other on a wire. Make a spring with the wire and glue it in your bouquet (I made 4 butterflies). For the final touch, add sparkles.
