What started as a card organiser inspired by a Crafter’s Companion You Tube tutorial turned into a lovely stationery holder gift.
this book has a pocket for each month of the year to hold cards for specific people so you can be really organised
the original tutorial has scrapbook style photo mats but I replaced these with note paper sheets which can be replaced as they are only fixed on with washi tape
every page has another mini pocket or gusset for other stationery bits and I have already tucked little pegs and cards in place
problem, can I bear to give it away?
Construction (see Crafter’s Companion year book tutorial for method);
cover made of card cut to 10″ tall, 14″ wide with a 2″ spine scored in the middle
cover was covered with paper cut to size from the 12″ paper pack (Folk craft? from Do Crafts?) and ribbon sandwiched under the cover paper with lots of glue to keep it fixed down
each of 12 pages was made by scoring a 12″ sheet at 6″ down the middle then flipping it over , turning it 180 degrees and scoring at 1″ top and bottom, the page was then folded on all the scores and the pages stuck with tape runner only on the top bottom and front so that the pages close to the spine could flex when assembled
when all 12 pages were assembled the stack was stuck inside the cover (adhering only top and bottom to keep the flex and make an extra pocket
embellish to taste!
