Brag Book

My winter break is coming to an end… it has been one good and busy break… I did not get chance to craft a lot this break… but I did manage to make few cards, a gift bag and tried a Brag Book today!! 
I must say I have seen them before, never thought of making one. But while surfing Pinterest, found this box that took me to Papercraftbutton‘s blog. She is a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in UK and has some fabulous projects on her blog. Do check them out. 

Elaine at Papercraftbutton made hers 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″- basically a square one…while mine is rectangular! It is pretty easy to make….just lot of cutting and some scoring and gluing! 

For this project you need

Outer Cover:
8-7/16 width x 4-2/8″ 

Score at 3-2/8, 3-3/4, 7, 7-1/2″
Printed Paper  for cover:
2 @ 4 x 3″
2 @ 4 x 3/8″
1 @ 4 x 3/4″

3 pieces of card @ 12 x 4″ (you could do 4 if you want)

Score them at 3″, 6″ and 9″
Printed Paper- 2-6/8 x 3-6/8″ (I used 19 pieces)

You need to connect the 3 pieces together to make one long strip. I glued DSP on both sides which is why I needed 19pieces (So I can have 19 pictures in this book :D)

Belly band:
Cardstock 1″ x 8-7/16″
Printed Paper- 3/4″ x 8-2/8″
Stick together then score at 3-2/8, 3-7/8, 7-1/8, 7-6/8″

For the original 3″ x 3″ Book Click HERE -Elaine’s post has the measurements for 3″ x 3″ book and also a link to the video where she shows how to make it (if you are like me who needs visual…her video explains well.)

I like the rectangular shape… although when I print pictures I will have to ensure they are the right size. So if you do not want to play around with cropping pictures, 3″ x 3″ book size is perfect. 

I love how it turned out… will put an updated picture of it (with photos in it)

This is for today…

Until next time,

Happy Krafting =)
