Let's Try That Again!

So some of you might have noticed I never came back to post over the weekend like I said I would, I’m hoping to get my internet woes sorted out soon!

Gosh we had a warm day today, and with no breeze so it made it feel even warmer. I love summer but not the hot days, I love the days that are just warm enough to feel like summer but not hot enough to make you long for winter!

I’m posting a project today that I did with my club ladies a while back, the tutorial for it can be found at Splitcoaststampers in the resources section. It’s actually quite easy, I did revise it slightly so that I could use regular 8.5x11 cardstock. I also didn’t have the chipboard coasters so I used the cardboard that comes with SU!’s designer paper. I recommend using your corner rounder punch on the cardboard before you glue your paper together, otherwise the layers are a little too thick for your punch.

I also didn’t use ribbon to tie the book together like the original tutorial, I find that the recipients of these sorts of things prefer the Velcro closure over the ribbon. I simply glued the flap between the cardboard and cardstock and than add the Velcro.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is super cute. I would love to know your measurements used for a 8-1/2x11 sheet of paper.
