We will be doing Alberto Juarez “book in a box, box in a book” I did at Art Venture. I have made my book a little bigger.
You will need:
2 pieces of chipboard 6 x 7
1 piece 2 x 7
I know the middle is WRONG should be 2 x 7
Then using 7 x 8 pattern paper wrapped the 6 x 7 pieces with your pattern paper making sure to miter your corners leaving about 1/8 gab at the corners. I will be using the Bo Bunny Madeline collection in class.
The middle 2 x 7 piece you will need to wrap it with a piece of cardstock 3 x 8. Score 1/2 inch at top and bottom and apply tape and fold up. You will apply tape to the 1/2 inch on the 7 inch side and yes you will glue it to the inside with they chipboard on the outside spine.
Next, we will make the outside bump to mimic a hard book spine.
Next we will be working on the box to go inside:
For the box that goes inside the album you will need:
2 pieces 6 3/4 x 5 scor at 1 inch and 3 inch
2 pieces 6 1/2 x 5 scor 1 inch and 3 inch and 1/2 inch top and bottom
Note: you will be scoring with the 5 inch side at the top of your scor board. I will show you in class how to assemble the box.
Then for the album inside you will new you will cut 6 pieces of chipboard at 6 1/4 x 5. We will be doing the mini next week.
I will also, be adding a lot of flowers to the front cover as well, as using the Prima die doilies. If you don’t have it you can use any paper doily you may have and any other embellishments you wish to add to the covers of this project.
So, grab your favorite collection you have been hording and come and play! Hope to see you there.
