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 complete.

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.....

For the box you have to cut a piece 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.

Now cut a piece of black cardstock for the lid at 7 5/8 x 7 5/8" and score this all the way round at 1 1/2 " and cut on the score lines on 2 sides and glue the lid together, now die cut 4 ornate borders and glue these on the sides of the lid, now you can put decorative paper on the box and some images from the collection.
