 Run through the Xyron Creative Station Max 3 pieces of heavy weight cardstock that measures 2 @ 5 1/2 x 4 inches and the center binding pieces at 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Please the adhesive side down on to a piece colored card stock as seen above leaving a gab in between the pieces for easy folding.

 Cover both the inside and outside of the book! Fold the book to help crease the binding!! 

 Cut two pieces of Pattern Paper to place on the inside of the book at 5 1/4 x 3  3/4. Run these through the Xyron Creative Station Max and adhere them inside the books covers. Take a dollar store mini paper pad and mini pin kit and glue them inside the book using liquid adhesive.

 Take the Craftwell Embossing folder and embossing a sheet of paper. ow what I did was cut it down to fit my book and wrapper the book cover showing the butterfly motif int he bottom right corner. I then inked the edges with a rose colored ink.

 I then embossed another piece of paper with the same folder and cut out the butterflies. I then used the Lindys Stamp Gang Embossing Powder and embossed the butter flies. I then glued using liquid glue only the body section down leaving the wings free. I then added a bling trim down the center of the butterflies.

With added finishing touches, I add some metal filagree corners to the top and bottom and drew in the butterfly antennas. I wrapped some ribbon about the book and tied it for closure. See finished design below!!
