FREEBIE Saturday (and Sunday)

In coordination with Monique we are happy to give you the images you need to create her cute and clever "Flip Over" domino book-one side is valentines and the other is Easter.

I drew the components quite small and then sized them down so you should be able to colours , fold, glue and go.

If you don't have dominos use poster board, illustration board or even the cardboard ends from art paper pads cut to size-for the ribbons you could use seam binding, twine, raffia or other fibers.

However you do it I hope you have fun and enjoy the process!

Monique had sent me one of these little domino books based on Alice in wonderland and I just loved it so when we decided to share it as a tutorial I also decided to give away the digis so everyone that wanted one could make it.

Here is Monique's Tutorial and the digis will follow:

Domino book tutorial


What you need:


Rick’s domino digi’s, 2 dominoes, Ribbon, Glue, Double sided tape, Bone folder, clear embossing powder, heat gun, Stickles
First measure the dominoes, you may have to adjust the size of the digi to fit to your dominoes.


Print the digi’s double sided (I first printed them on two different pages , glued them back to back in the way they should be. and then copied double sided)
Colour the images for the front and the back of the book , glue them on the the back side of the domino (leave some of the edges of the domino visible to make it easier to seal them ) and put some versamark ink over the image and the domino’s and put clear embossing powder over the image and the edges of the dominoes, heat with heat gun (don’t panic if the first layer is not smooth) and repeat till you got 3 layers. Let cool and add stickles around the edges and let dry


First colour the images on both sides, then cut to fit the dominoes and accordion fold like the pics above. You have to leave a blanc space the size of a domino on the valentines side to attache the dominoes.
Use double sided tape to glue the ribbon to the domino, in the same way as in the pic, Domino has to be in the middle and the ribbon should be big enough to tie a bow on both sides of the domino.
Then glue the book to the dominoes as in the pic (use a liquid glue so you can move the book a bit while glueing so everything will be straight)
This is the book when closed with the bows.

Free Images promotion is now ended...sorry

BIG THANKS to Monique for all her work on this project and the others from the "GIFTY" series it isn't always easy to coordinate such things over thousands of miles and a 9 hour time difference-what DID we do without computers????

Be sure and stop by SPARKLE AND GLITTER our challenge blog and see all the NEW samples for HUGS and KISSES (or Hearts and Kisses depending) and get your entry in soon-the next challenge FEB 14 will be ALL THE THINGS I LOVE.

  1. Monique, if I need to print only one side of the paper, can the two sides be glued together before you fold them or will that create problems? Thanks!
    Ohh, and thank you, Rick, for the very sweet panorama stamps for the inside and the cover stamps as well.

  2. YES SHARON you can-I think that's what Monique did originally-you could also colour them larger and then size down and scan coloured copies glued back to back

  3. Haven't tried that sharon. I prefer to print double sided. Think it is easier to fold. But you can try

  30. oh i have just seen this cant believe i missed the freebie but this looks so much fun to make and would be great with the school holidays coming up for the kids to do. For them i think i would used a 3d glue here in the uk called anitas takes a bit longer to dry but would work no heat needed then for the kids. Loving the freebie Rick
