Liz has put together an excellent tutorial to show you how to create the Address Book in a gorgeous sleeve, found on the new Destinations CD-ROM!
Step 1: Print out desired design from CD ROM and cut out the elements required. The Broadway and New York design have been used for this project.
Ensure that you have printed enough inner pages for your requirements.
Step 2: Emboss an A4 piece of Crafter’s Companion kraft card and mount it onto the back of the front and back cover.
Cut two small triangles from the remaining kraft card to act as pockets inside the front and back covers.
Step 3: Decorate the embossed surface with the vintage photos and antique linen distress inks the lightly rub some Pebeo gilding wax over the surface.
Cut a piece of acetate to cover the front and back covers.
Step 4: Make a closer by using one of the tickets front he ‘Note cubes’ section of the CD ROM and mount it onto a piece of Kraft card. Affix this to a strip of acetate and then onto another piece of kraft card, the same size as the first.
Bend this into a curve tight enough to fit over the opening of the address book. Affix the closer to the back page of acetate using Collall Tacky glue. Cover the glue that shows through the acetate with paper from the New York design set.
Step 5: Bind the book together by punching 2 holes for the spine and secure some twine through the holes. Leave it loose enough for the pages to turn.
Step 6: To make the sleeve, cut piece of kraft card measuring 7½“ by 10”. With the longest edge butted up to the left hand side, use the ultimate Pro to score at ¾” and 6 ¾”.
Turn the card 90° and score at 4 and 5/16”, then 5 and 3/16”.
Step 7: Prior to assembling the sleeve, emboss the cardstock and decorate the exterior, and interior, as you wish.
Fold and burnish the score lines and assemble the sleeve.
To complete my design I have added a tab for a pen/pencil, used glossy accents to highlight the metallic corners and the text, liquid pearls to highlight the lightbulbs and a brad on the front of the closer.
