I used the freebie, the blue snowman from Colour Frosty Longstockings, plain blue paper printed directly onto card from Ice Queen papers, and one of the Winter Words papers which I bought last year but can't find on her site now, although I did find Snowflakes and Beyond papers which would be perfect too. I made the word-art myself and the snowflakes are made with Marianne Creatable dies and a Martha Stewart punch. Ribbon and gems are from stash.
To make the Book-a-Easel - I re-sized the 2 pages, making the front one smaller than the back one, I added my graphic and word-art onto the front page and the book-plate and then printed it all out onto one sheet of A4 card. I printed a sheet of blue card for the easel base and also the winter words paper and an extra snowman.
Make up your easel base as usual, mine is 14.5 x 14.5cms, cut a 1cm strip from the front fold-back section, (when you add your back page the card doesn't show below the shape). Cut out pages, book-plate and extra snowman leaving a small white edge around each piece. Score the front page down the middle and then curve either side from the centre. Glamour dust all the white edges and any other parts that take your fancy. Add ribbon down the centre of the front page and a bow at the top. Attach the back page to the easel base, then the front page to the back by using wet glue down the centre crease. Fix the extra snowman into place using foam pads. Curve the book-plate in the same way as the front page, put three layers of foam pads under it, a bit of wet glue at each side and stick into place. Glitter and make up snowflakes, and affix where desired.
(To glitter my snowflakes I added a drop of water to a small amount of tacky glue, brushed it over the snowflakes and then covered in glamour dust, you get really good coverage with the glitter this way.)
That's all there is to it, not too difficult but they look really effective. There are lots more Book-a-Easels in the Clipart Fairy store, ready to print here or interactive here for the regular ones and here for the new shape.
