Steampunk meets Halloween Rolodex

I was surfing the web one day, and went to YouTube.  I found a video tutorial on this amazing project, and I wanted to share it with you.  The video is by Margaret, and it can be found here.  Her blog is here, you should check it out!
 This is my interpretation of her design.  I did it all as she did, with a few tweaks to the base and to the file inserts.  I used Recollections Steampunk Botanical paper line, and added a bunch of metal embellishments and a skeleton to it.  I apologize in advance, it is a bit pic heavy.
 I wanted to give the illusion that the skeleton was wearing a skirt, so I cut the flowers to go around the waist.
 The embellishments are from Tim Holtz mainly.  Some of these came from my stash and I have no idea where I got them.
 I embellished half of the pages, leaving room for adding things as I go along.

 There are eight pockets all together.  Each pocket has a tag.  There is also a front and back cover.

The bottom tag is covered on the front and back, leaving room for a big picture. The top tag, I added a pocket on one side.  I really love how this turned out, and I  plan on making more in different styles.  This is an awesome project.  Go check it out, I bet you will want to make one too!!

Stay crafty, my friends!
