And another one...

This is the Father's Day book I did for my dh in 2006. I got the concept from Ali Edwards, who posted on her blog about using chipboard as pages in an album. I immediately thought of this little D-Ring binder that didn't have page protectors inside, and was sitting at my lss forever, so I snagged it...I used chipboard for all the pages in this book. I also used very little patterned paper, along with some 7Gypsies office type embellishments. It went together quickly.
The first and the last pages are the only full pages in the book. As you turn the pages, each page gets 1" smaller width wise...
Some pages are full photos. I sanded the edges to make it look more worn.


This is the middle of the book, and here you can see that the pages are graduated...




So go grab some chipboard, black ink and a few pieces of paper along with some office supplies, and get to work!!

Loved your emails on how a couple of you are lifting the books exactly--so I was sure to include all the pages today too. Thanks for the kind words!!

And yes, there will be sneaks soon, I promise!
