Meander Book

I haven't had much time to create or post anything this weekend, between cleaning up the house from Thanksgiving and caring for my youngest son Connor who has an awful cold and has been up in the middle of the night every night for the last 4 or 5 nights, I'm wiped out. If he isn't feeling better by tomorrow I'm taking him in to the doctors, which is crazy because I just had him at the doctors last Monday for a check up and a round of shots.

Anyway......I saw this tutorial on splitcoast stampers last week that Beate had done and wanted to give it a try, its called a meander book and the inside pages are made from a single sheet of 12X12 paper, very cool! If you would like to try and make one of these meander books follow this link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/meander_book/ just remember when it comes to cutting your 12X12 sheet of paper after its been scored, in the first column cut from the top down to 9", the second column cut from the bottom up to 3" and the last column cut from the top down to 9" again. I had a hard time making these cuts the first time so I hope this helps. I'm going to put some small pictures of my kids in this book and on the tags jot down some of their favorite things about Christmas.

Supplies: Perfect Presentation, Snow Flurries, Seeing Spots, Expressive Flexible Phrases, Flexible Phrases, Fundamental Phrases stamp sets, Deja Views Flurries & Frost paper, Circle punches, Ticket corner punch, Tag corner punch, Ribbon, Brads, Stapler, Bind-it-All, Two coasters, Glue stick to cover coasters and pop dots for the tree on front.

You did a great job! Now you've got me up past my bedtime trying it out!!! So far, so good, except I punched the semi-circle through both pages of the first three pockets. I'll have to get creative. I love the way you put the project together! Thanks for the inspiration!
