...these cards are BIG, A5 in size.
Start by cutting 9 of them in half.
Paint them with white acrylic paint.
When dry put 4 of them to one side:
...after deciding what size hole to use make a template and using this cut a hole in the cards.
Put this to one side and make the amount of front pages required:
To make one page:
Select your paper.
Make sure you can fit 2 pieces of card side by side on it...
...Glue the other side to attach to back of completed pages.
You should now have an undecorated back and front cover and the "book" in the middle:
...Glue the spine and then cover with cotton tape, leave to dry.
While drying make the cover:
...On the wrong side glue UPTO the outer fold lines (highlighted in black above).
Attach to the book, remember which is back page:
Just need to decorate the cover and inside pages so watch this space.
Will post completed project.
What I learnt from this project:
1)Cheap board books pages split, scour charity shop and look for board books with THICK pages.
2)I couldn't get a board book with deep enough "hole" which is why decided on Flash card version. Don't be afraid to make your own.
3)If superglue touches the acrylic it turns the sheet white.
4)The perfect gIue for me is: TOMBOW
The only negative point about it is a horrible sticky residue on skin (this does wash off) and can forgive this because the glue sticks EVERYTHING...the proof...this book is standing on it's side...
...In there is metal (key, bottle top, penny)/lego/various plastic items/paper/sweet wrapper/rubber...
5)Found clothes pegs make great clamps, for sticking pages together while working.
6)To keep card flat when had glued the pages placed under my Rev case to dry completely. This project size fitted under it perfectly : )
7)Don't be afraid to make mistakes, learn from them.
This is an extra picture to show my sister what my desk really looks like when I'm working on a project: I'm betting tidy is the first word that spings to mind:
