You have to make some careful measurements when making this book. You want the book to fit perfectly in the case so you can close it.
Measure the dimensions of the case excluding the spine and take a 1/8 to a 1/4 of an inch off those dimensions.
You want them to completely cover one another.
I prefer not to secure the front page to the case, like by taping or gluing, as this can make it harder to close. When you open the book you just slide that front page back in place if needed.
The letters were cut from white paper and outlined on the edges with silver sharpie.
I punched some holes out of white paper and glued those on for the snow.
Darker blue with white circles from a toilet roll stamped in white paint.
Grey with painted on glitter.
Purple with white paint dropped in with an eye dropper and then blown with a straw for some snow covered trees. Finally I used a white crayon to make some snow drifts, made dots in the sky with it as well and then painted in a sunset. The crayon resisted the paint to make it look like it was snowing.
I glued on some snowflakes for the first page. A little snowman made from painted paper scraps for the third, and then added text printed out from the computer and the cut and glued into place.
Embellish if you wish just choose fairly flat items so you can still close that case.
