8 x 8 Books


I made these books for my friend for her to put in some photos of the kids.  I used a cover it all cover from zutter.  I painted it cranberry, raspberry blue and black.  I gave it 3 coats of glossy mod podge.  The letters are grunge boards from the alphabet set.


Some of the inside pages with the paper stacks I got last weekend from the Range.



And this one is for her daughter who likes purple, green and pink.  Again painted and 3 coats of mod podge.  I used a piece of ribbon across this one to hide the colour join.


More of the inside pages.


Thanks to Bren for this fantastic idea of using file folders and 8 x 8 paper stacks.

What a brilliant idea - did you get the covers from the Range as well as the paper?

There actually is a Range about 15 miles from me so I could go and get some. I was thinking I could make one for my D.I.L to put photos in of our 'Luke'. They tend to keep all their photos on one of those memory stick things - such a shame - as the 'old fashioned' photo albums are lovely to look at.
