Tuck it in Book.

Remember the Napkin book.
While I was in bed last night I had a brain wave.
The gesso covers would be great as part of the project.

So I just punched them and decorated
to make my book .

So here goes on how to make the pages.

Take a piece of scrapbook paper.

Cut it down to 24cm by 24 cm.

Fold it in half , to make a triangle.
Line the folded edge up on your score board.
Now score at 11cm.
Flip the triangle over and repeat at 11cm.

In inches it's slightly smaller.
9" by 9" for the Square.
score at 4 1/2" from the edge.

Unfold the paper then refold the sides
you scored in,
then fold in half at the centre line.
Make your binding holes on this fold.
 Just cut the centre fold of your design
before you make the holes
 to make two pockets.

I made 8 pockets out of 4 sheets of scrapbook paper.

The tags inside the pockets
are made by
taking a piece of card and cutting it at
21cm by 11.75cm.
Score at 14cm and fold.
Cut a  piece of card 6cm by 11cm for matting.

 9 inches by 4 1/4.
Score at 6".
2 3/4" by 3 3/4" for the mat.

You can change the mat size to what ever you have to hand, mine were the off cuts
of the scrapbook paper.
So it matches the design.
Waste not want not..

These fit inside the pockets.

I also had some left over scraps of card,
these were just fold and matted once more.
Then tucked in to bottom fold of the pocket.
