Instructions: For more images of this project see here. Cut 12 pieces of 4 x
4" out of gray board. Cover all 12 pieces on one side with pattern paper,
photo, and any image you want. Distress all the edges.
Now take six pieces and put the
blank side up, mark the 6 pieces 1/2 inch in, on both sides and 1 directly in the
middle (I will put up some drawings on my blog). IMPORTANT the photos on the
bottom parts are facing to the right and the photos on the top part are facing
the other direction, otherwise they are upside down when you open the book!!!
Now place one piece in front of you
with the lines up apply Scor-Tape on the guidelines, lay the left edge of the
ribbon along the tape at the top and bottom line so that the ribbon trails to
the right, place the middle ribbon the opposite direction, allowing the ribbon
to trail off the left.
Now select an " Unmarked" piece of
decorated Gray board and apply tape or glue to the whole back surface of the
undecorated side, place this on top of the Glued ribbons and the Gray board.
Flip the top and bottom ribbons
over the decorated side of the gray board that was just glued down, the top and
bottom ribbons should now trail off the left, and the middle will go to the
right, do NOT adhere the ribbons!
Select another marked piece and
place that with the marked side up directly on top of the first set, Repeat
these steps till you have one piece left.
Before adhering the final piece of
gray board trim the ribbons so that the ends are hidden when the project is
Now Grab the top part and bend it
then all the pages are falling down, then bend it again and they will fall
again you can go on for hours.....

of Black Cardstock at 10 1/2 x 10 1/2 " and score it all the way round at
3" then cut in the score lines on 2 sides and glue the box together.

1/2 " and cut on the score lines on 2 sides and glue the lid together, now
