8 x8 inch Album

Handmade 8x8 Album

Hi everyone Candy here
sorry I have been awal for a while but been away
on holidays then when I came home no computer.
So hopefully all good now.
So today I have created an 8 x 8 inch album using
some  A4 chipboard as the cover.

I used 2 pieces of the A4 chipboard and cut an 8 x8 inch square from both.
using one of the left over pieces cut a piece at 4 x 8 inches this piece is for the spine.

Lay 2 pieces of white 12 x 12 inch card stock beside each other and
tape together. Using tape, tape around all edges and middles of your card stock
and lay onto your white card stock.
Centering the smaller one (spine) in the centre of the card stock.
Laving about 1/8 inch between the pieces.
This allows the book to bend.

Mitter the corners of the card stock

Use your bone folder to go around the edges of the book 
and then gently bend your pieces to fold over the edges.
Add some tape to these edges and tape down. 
Crease the center spine and also gently bend not to crack your card stock.

Cut 2 pieces of white card stock at 7 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches and also a piece at
3 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches this one is for the centre spine.
Tape down using plenty of tape as this will be opened and closed
you need it to be strong.
Now your base is finished.
