I made this little chipboard book for my mother a couple of weeks ago and since I have finally given it to her I can share it with you. She does not check my blog very often but once in a while she does... so I had to wait just in case. :)
I used the new Top Note Bigz Die from Stampin' Up to cut the covers from chipboard and then covered them with Maine Blueberry designer paper (which I also cut with the Top Note die.) I distressed the edges with a sanding block and then used my Cropodile to cut two holes and set jumbo eyelets in each cover. For the inside pages I took 3 1/2 x 5 index cards and trimmed them to 3 3/4 wide before punching with the Cropodile. I then assembled the book using book rings to hold it all together. To finish I decorated the front cover and added a bit of ribbon to the top book ring.
Here's a shot of the inside: it's all ready for some fun notes!
