Travel mini book by Esther

This includes all of the papers in the August kit. The chipboard Travel book by Bo-Bunny was assembled in the following steps:

1-When planning for overlapping of pages and staggered letters, start by choosing the contrasting layers. Some longer pages were color-blocked to give coverage.

2-Trace around the pages to cut and adhere to chipboard. I used StazOn black ink for the edges first. Cover edges of chipboard and a little in from all edges. When completed, the book will look more finished.

3-Cardstocks were adhered with Scotch Quick-dry Adhesive. Make sure to get the glue on the edges to have a good finished edge when dry. Let dry thoroughly or edges will tear.

4-Sand the edges and finish with black as needed.

5-After covering the first sides, punch holes. Now adhere cardstocks to back sides in same manner & punch holes.

6-Attach with rings large enough for easy turning of pages.

Decorate with stickers, buttons, tags, ribbons and metal pieces. Add photos.
