completed tiger book

Here is my completed science project! I have been so busy and there has been NO time to post. Sorry about my slacking but I do promise that I am working on 2 new mini albums and I will possibly even make a video to show them to you :) I will have them done within a few weeks and will have them posted soon after. Dont worry, there will be more to come before then too.
Close up of cover: BG white chipbaord stickers, cuttlekids letter die
The mini album is bound with 2 big binder rings. I added a bunch of coordinating tiger coloured ribbon.
All the plant pieces are from Micheals or something. I have had them for years...
I stamped the tiger on some cardstock, watercoloured it and added some glossy accents.
All the typed info is printed on regualr printer paper. I used a tea bag technique combined with some inking to distress it.
The sticks are glued on with a couple drops of glossy accents (works as adhesive too!) and I put one decrative stich in the middle with some embroidery floss.
I made the photo matt look like a tag by adding a half circle at the top.
The tree was cut using the paper dolls cartridge for the cricut machine.
This page has a large pocket which I used to tuck the tag into. Here is another glossy tiger circle attached with a pin.
I beaded the border thingy. I really love the cool teeth/claw pointy beads! they are super cool!
This page is very simple. I added another stick and I wanted the tiger pin to stand out. Isnt it cute?
I just happened to find the pin laying around! I cut the pionty thing off and used glossy accents to adhere it.
I used a handmade newspaper flower on this page. More of the cool grass stuff too!
My favourite part on this page is the tooth charm. Same kind as before but I attached it to the stick with a chain.

I hope you like my mini book! Please let me know what you think.

lovely project, I've been thinking the last couple of weeks that I would like to make a tiger album. Tigers are the favorite animal of one of my friends. Thanks for sharing, Geraldine.
