Sizzix has a new product called Paper Leather Sheets. You can use this product to emboss, stamp on, add shape to die cuts and stitch. In the project below, we've used the leather paper as a book-binding. The grey leather paper was embossed with Tailored embossing folder from Tim Holtz. The folder gave us our 1 inch cuts and a centre line to follow for folding. Each page in the book was made by die-cutting Sizzix tag die 660280. The pockets were made by scoring each tag at 2 1/2 inches from the bottom and folding up and gluing the pocket.

All of the papers used for the book came from Sizzix paper pad Fox Tales.

Each of the pockets holds a small note which is folded to 3 x 5 inches. The front and back cover were also cut with the tag dies out of a heavier mat board. The bottom 2 and 1/2 inches was cut off of each heavy tag to match up with the pages. The front and back cover were covered inside by another tag, and outside with printed paper.

Some of the papers are printed in black and white, so you can colour them yourself! Consider this your adult colouring book!
