My Little LOST Book…………….

I saw the idea for this book over on Debbie’s blog.   She gave some great images- so I was able to make my own instructions for this cute little book.  I am sure there are directions floating around somewhere out there in web-space.  Sometime’s it is just easier and faster for me to make up my own!
The one thing I wanted to change about the book was that the envelopes are attached to the book.  I thought it would make a super cute card holder instead if I could make it so they came out and were usable.

  Can you see the paper clips?  I used those to attach the envelopes to the accordion folds instead of adhering them.  This will allow the recipient to remove the card and envelope for use.IMG_9186



Inside back cover……………….


So here are the measurements if you would like to make one yourself!
I used (5)  4 3/4 x 6 1/2 envelopes
5 matching card are placed inside the envelopes
Accordion binding- 12 x 6 1/2 score at every 1 inch mark
Ribbon- (2)  12” strands adhere both to inside back cover BEFORE you add accordion binding and back cover lining page.
Chipboard 5 x 6 5/8 (2 of these)
Cover cardstock 6 x 7 5/8 (2 of these as well)
Inside cover linings- 4 3/4 x 6 1/2
12 matching paper clips

This is a fun project to put together with dramatic results!
Enjoy!  Feel free to leave me a message or email me if you have any questions!

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
