Cookbook Flip Album

Thank you all for purchasing the Cookbook album Kit. I was excited to make mine but I never realized that I would love it so much. I am hoping you will love yours just too. Keep in mind that you can laminate any of these items to make them last longer. After you fill in your cards just run them through the laminator, seal them and you can get all kinds of things on them and just wipe it clean. Same with the outside just seal it and then it will last for a long, long time. 

We have also included the link to the PDF file for the cards in case you need more, just print them off. 

Written instructions are listed below as well as photos, and the link to your exclusive video tutorials

Trim out your recipe cards. You can see on the video how I trimmed mine but it is up to you how much or how little you trim off. 

Cut 2 pieces of the brown cardstock to 7x7 inches, these will be your covers for your 6x6 chipboard pieces included in your kits. Draw a line across the bottom and on the left side at the 1/2" mark from the edge, this will give you a good place to lay your chipboard in when glueing, to keep it straight.
Lay your chipboard down and cover with the cardstock. Trim the corners leaving at least 1/8" from the tip of the chipboard to the end of the paper. Fold your cardstock over the chipboard and glue in place. 

Inside mats are cut at 5 7/8x5 7/8 inches cut two and glue in place.

Outside mats are cut at 5 3/4"x5 3/4" cut two and glue in place. 

Cut strips from your brown cardstock that measures 1"x6 1/4" score on each end at 1/4". You will need 4 sheets for each page, two for front and two for back. Glue only on the two folded over scored ends and across one long edge. Leave the other edge open to slide your card into. You can make these various colors if you want to match each page. 

Cut a top strip that is 1 1/2"x5 3/4" score on the short side at 3/4" all the way down. Fold in half and use this piece on the edge where you will be putting your holes for the rings. This will act as a reinforcement. 

I punched my holes at the top, you can have a side flip if you want. For the top I only used two rings. I punched the holes 1 3/4" in from each side and 3/8" down from top. Using my crop-a-dial, on the largest hole I punched these out. I then colored my hole reinforcements brown and placed around the holes. Using these holes as a guide I then place my pages on them and marked my holes on my pages and punched the pages. 

For the front it is up to you how you embellish, but I used just a piece of scrap red paper and cut a strip 1"x5 3/4" and ran across the middle. I then cut a brown piece that matched the browns on my pages 4 1/4x2 1/4 and a white piece that is 4x2. I glued the white piece on the brown and used this as my cover focal point. I used some old thickers I had in my stash to spell out Nana Cookbook, yes I forgot to put my ( 's) but I will add that in later. I also took some of my stickers and added them around, some bling, and the two charms on. 

I tied ribbon on the rings and it is finished for now. I will keep adding pages, and I will most likely seal this so I will not mess it up when I cook, since I get things everywhere when I am in the kitchen. lol.

So each day this week we will do a buckle card,, they will all be different, so no two will buckle the same way. Hope you enjoy and I hope this gives you some inspiration. If so please make sure to share on our Facebook Page. We would love to see your take on this card.

Thanks so much and enjoy, E

Camera Box with Mini Album

Quick and easy gift idea is this camera box with a mini album inside. I have the tutorial up for the box and tomorrow we will make the little mini and put inside.

Box measurements:

Cardstock that is 11 1/8"x8 1/4" score on the long side at 4 3/4", 6 3/8" turn one turn and score at 1" and 7 1/4".

Design paper is cut at 5 7/8"x4 3/8" need 2 front and back
Design paper is cut at 4 3/8"x1 1/4" need 2 sides

Cut in on the center score lines just to the horizontal score line and wedge out, glue the little flap up and the sides together. Creating your box bottom. 

Box Lid:

Cardstock that is 9 3/8"x4 3/4" score on the long side at 1 1/2, 7 7/8" turn and score at 1 1/2"x 3 1/4"
Design paper for mats are cut as follows;
6"x1 3/8" for top
6"x1 1/8" cut 2
1 1/2x1 1/8 cut 2

For the little lens I used a paper towel roll and cut a piece that is 1". I then cut a circle that was 2 1/2" and 3 that were 1 3/4". Glue the 3 smaller ones together and place in the center of the large one. 
This piece will go on the bottom of the paper towel circle. You will need to cut slits in the edges so it will fold up and glue to the sides of the paper towel circle. This will create your base.
To create the top or lens part you will need another circle that is 2 1/5" and you need to cut out the center part at the 1 1/5" mark. So if you have another circle punch that is 1 1/5" then just use it and punch out the middle. Take a piece of acetate that is a little larger than the opening and glue on the inside. Cut you slits in this piece as well and glue it on the other end of the paper towel circle creating your lens. If you want to put something inside this little lens you could and it would be beautiful.  

For the circles on the top I used a 1" circle punch and just punched out quite a few and glued them together making a stack. Do the same with the small circles, those are 3/8" circles. This will make your buttons for the top. 

For the little part on the top front I used a piece of paper that was 1/2"x12" and scored every 1" forming an accordion. Cut a piece of acetate and put on the front making it look like the little view finder. Glue the folds together and place on the front. Glue you bling where ever you like. Put your little ribbon handle on the end and it is finished. 

Mini Album

Cardstock cut at 12x4 1/2" score at 5 1/2" turn 180 and score at 5 1/2". 
Page two cardstock 11 3/4"x4 1/2" score at 5 1/2" on each end as above.
Page three cardstock 11 1/2"x4 1/2" score at 5 1/2 on each end as above.
Final page cardstock 11 1/4"x 4 1/2" score at 5 1/2 on each end as above.

Mats for your pages are 4 1/4x5 1/4 you will need 16 of these.

Glue the pages together at the spine in the order shown above and on the video, embellish and you are finished.
