Patterned paper for decorating your book. Cutting directions are included in the section "Decorate and finish your book" below.
Scor-Tape or other double-sided tape. 1/4" or 1/2".
Build your album:
Centre one of the hinge systems over the inside surface of each of the two spine pieces, leaving equal margins on top and bottom and centering it side to side. Once the hinge piece is centered, stick it down and burnish well to make sure it's not going to move. The flaps will extend out onto the front and back covers and help to hold the covers to the hinge system.
4. Add the pages:
Repeat with each page and each hinge. You will now have two sets of hinges, one on each spine and with three pages attached to each. Each page is now ready for its insert.
7. Flap inside right cover:
Note: If you plan to use eyelets set into your cover for your closure system, now is the time to do that, before you decorate the inside of your book. The directions for this follow:
Note: Make sure your eyelets are long enough to go through both the cover of the book and the chipboard buttons you are using before making the hole in your book.
Outside Back Cover - 6-3/8 x 6-1/8
Outside Spine - 2 @ 1-5/8 x 6-1/8
To finish your book, add embellishments and cut photo mats and tags as desired to add to pockets and to tuck behind the embellishments. If using chipboard embellishments to put mats and tags behind, attach only the outside edges away from where you want your tags to be put, so that you can slip them behind the chipboard piece.
