Keep it Together!

Want to keep stuff together?.... This little book is a record of some of the challenges I've done.The images are already on my blog so I just selected some and printed them wallet sized.
You will need 2 chipboard covers and as many pages as you like.
My pages are 14x9cms, all different colours. I used the My Card stamp from Purple Onion ( Maybe out of stock at the moment but there's bucket loads of new stuff on the way so keep looking!)

Cover your front and back covers. Stamp the hand onto white card....dull the image with an ink pad, I used TH Antique Linen. Glue the hand to chipboard and cut out............glue this to the front WHEN YOU HAVE PUNCHED THE HOLES FOR BINDING!... 2 layers of chipboard does not go into a Bind it All!
Cut out your printed images.... with a craft knife cut around the fingers and slip in your image beneath the fingers..

I used an old text book for background paper

and added stitches around each page

Try using a selection of your own photographs.. maybe for a birthday or other special occassion!

Hope you like it
