A book with a heart in a window

When I made my first window book, I loved it, but working with the extra thick board needed to make the tile float was a bit challenging.  I tried a thinner item - a heart paperclip.

Inside the book, I made a little pocket to cover up some raw edges.  (See my pocket tutorial)  On this pocket, I stamped some images using a masking technique.

If you missed the first time I made a book like this, check out my original series:

  1. Created the covers (for this book, I used thinner bookboard)
  2. Added the floating element to the cover
  3. Assembled the book
  4. Finished book
I'm wondering what else I have that can be put in a window - I think the possibilities are endless!

    That floating heart is just beautiful. I love the way it's tethered with those little leather (?) straps. The whole book is a work of art. You must struggle to part with them!

  3. I love your window book and the floating element is so cool!! You definitely inspire me to try my hand at it someday.

  4. Thanks for all of the comments! I can't wait to try some other ideas I have for floating elements.

    The paperclip is suspended by grosgrain ribbon. I used a glue dot and a brad to fasten it to the paperclip.
