In this little booklet is some of the fabulous double-sided Echo Park Distressed Solid Paper. Its very thick quality card almost with a distressed/mottly look around the edges. I like this better than cardstock. Each side has a contrasting colour.
Image

Here's how this little booklet is put together..

STEP ONE
Cut out five pieces at 6inch x 7 3/4inches
Image

STEP TWO
fold in half… trim off the excess that happens when its folded
Image

STEP THREE
Mark three points on the fold about about an inch or so from either ends and one in the middle and pierce them
Image

STEP FOUR (Binding)
Thread some string or twine in a needle then from the side of the cover – put the needle into the middle hole leaving some of the thread (about 1 1/2ins) hanging out
Image

STEP FIVE
From the inside of the book, push the needle through one of the holes near the edge
Image

STEP SIX
Then on the cover side – insert the needle into the hole at the other end, finishing with it being threaded through (from the inside to outside) the middle hole again. Image

STEP SEVEN
Its good if you can keep the needle on the opposite side of the binding to the first bit of thread left hanging, then you can tie it off in a knot.
Image

STEP EIGHT
Thread three little buttons together
Image


STEP NINE
Tie to the ends of the string to dangle from the booklet
Image


Then dress up. Here I've used 'For the Record' Element Stickers and the black 'measuring tape' is from the paper Borders
