Lean mean Scrapbook ...

Click here to follow her link for instructions.

This great little book is someone elses design.
Click on JimJams Idea above to get the instructions.
It's quick to make.

All I did different was to make one of the long pockets for a cover instead.

A4 cardstock Scored at 5" , 5 1/2" and cut at 10 1/2"
Score the other way at 4" and 8".
Fold over and  punch circles at the edges.
Add Ribbon and glue inside, either the full length of the book or just at the edges.
Fold the 1/2" left over and use as a tab to glue the pocket together.

You can either glue the back page down as JimJam did or make a small hinged section for the centre,
Take a scrap of cardstock that is  3"  by 1 1/4"
Score it at 1" and fold to make an L shape.

Glue the 1" section to the inside of page 3.
This leaves 1/4" peeping out.
Before you seal the bottom of the pocket.

Glue the other to the inside of page 5.
Again leave the 1/4" peeping out.
This will then fit into the 1/2"
centre of the inside cover.
Check for size and trim the flaps if they seem to big.
Add glue and hold together for a few seconds.
