Domino Swap

Back in February I took part in the Cardmaking Paradise Domino Swap. The only dominoes I could find measured one and half inches by three quarters of an inch - much smaller than the norm! The smaller images on the Crafty Individuals plate CI-329 were just the right size to make a domino book. I used copier paper for the pages so it wouldn't be too bulky when closed. 

The bird images were stamped on tissue paper before being glued to the alcohol inked domino covers and then Viva Gold applied to the edges.

 I decorated a matchbox for the book to go into.
