Tab Book - David Copperfield

Here is a book I made with different size tabs, tags, ribbon, dictionary pages and Dickens images from Ten Two Studios. I am still not sure what to do to the outside of the book since it is so plain.
I chose to do Dicken's "David Copperfield" because it is one of my favorite books and the images seem to fit the story nicely.

The first thing I did was to stamp all my "pages" with different backgrounds. I wanted to leave much of the original color of the tabs to make the images stand out. On my tags above I chose the characters and stamped their names on the dictionary pages. The last tag is glued to the page so the back of the brad does not show. It makes a nice fan.
On these pages I used three different tabs to fit with what I wanted to do. As you can see the smaller ones open to make more "pages" to my book.
I was able to figure out how to make smaller tab pages fit in the spine of my book. It took a little paper engineering to make it work.
The bottom page has a smaller tab page book glued to a larger page with a ribbon to hold it shut. Hope you enjoyed my book, of course not all the pages were shown.
