Triangle Pocket

Triangle Pocket

Do this with a practice piece of paper first.

1. Cut any size square from double sided designer paper - I've used the new Stampin' Up! Apple Cider paper from the 2007 Holiday Mini Catalog.

2. My square is 5-1/2 X 5-1/2

Turn it so the top has all open corners and turn the first piece of paper down to the tip of the bottom of the square. Allow a little of the underneath paper to show.

Adding A Photo

Adding A Photo

I love this "1st Day of School" photo of Amelia and wanted it to show through the lid opening. I cut a piece of scrapbook page protector a little larger than the photo. The page protector and the photo were glued to the lid with Stampin' Up! Sticky Strip extra-tacky tape.


Inside of Cigar Box

The is the finished inside - I've painted the bottom of the inside the sides of the inside and the inside cover.

Here you can see the matting that covers up the photo that shows through the front opening.

Ribbon

Ribbon

You need to add ribbon to the metal ring binding - otherwise the book eventually works it way off of the rings. I tie lots and lots of ribbon between the two sides of the metal loops.


Ribbon

Ribbon

As I said - lots and lots of ribbon!

Ribbons are from the $1.00 sections of Michaels and Target, Close To My Heart and
Stampin' Up!


Book in the Box

Book in the Box

That's it - the book fits snuggly into the Cigar Box - if your making a lumpy book don't add more pages than your box will accommodate. Also my metal rings are a little large - this was my first time ordering supplies so I wasn't sure what size to get. These rings are 1-1/4" I'll have to play around size wise.


Completed

Completed

The completed set - hope Amelia likes it! Also, hope I've inspired you to make a little gift for someone. Wouldn't this be cute for a baby shower or a grandma brag book?!?

Again, if you like the Cigar Box just let me know - I have a source.
