I'd like directions too. I assume you made it with your bind it all. I'm curious how you measured the holes for the index cards vs the cover. And - what is the cover made of? Great job!

doesn't the bind it all come with a punch thing so you punch it right?

I have seen this and will respond later. I think I'm having an allergic reaction to some medicine the Dr. gave me because I am itching like a dog with fleas!

LOVE IT!!!! This is beautiful!! Love the ribbon especially! :) I was on a ribbon kick this weekend! Guess how many spools I bough? 19! I don't know what was going on. I guess I was on a ribbon scavenger hunt! :)

OK, I did have an allergic reaction and boy did Benedryl become my best friend in a hurry, lol! No more of that medicine!

This book was made with my Bind-it-all. Here are the instructions:

1. Cut four pieces of chipboard 3.5 x 5.25. This will make the two covers. You will adhere two of the pieces together and then adhere the other two.

2. Cut two pieces of patterned paper 4.25 X 6.25. You will use these to cover the chipboard covers. Coat the outside of the covers with Royal decoupage to adhere the paper to the front. You will need to trim the corners at an angle and then turn the overhang to the inside and decoupage inside the cover. Repeat for the other cover.

3. Cut two pieces of coordinating paper or cardstock 3 x 5 for the inside covers. Decoupage the inside covers well.

4. Once you have your covers assembled, apply three to four coats of decoupage and let dry between coats. Set aside.

5. Count the number of 3 x 5 index cards that you would like to use. If you would like to put dividers in between your cards, you can cut cardstock to 3 x 5 and sandwich them between the pages.

6. Punch the holes with the Bind-it-all and bind it with an o-wire.

7. Decorate the cover as you'd like.

That's all there is to it :).

I limited myself to one spool and tried to org what I have in my box o'ribbon! and kept finding some as I was cleaning out my CM bag.
