It was really hard for me to cut the covers off the book, I don't know, it just didn't seem right LOL, once I got it done I was OK though.
I think the Crop-A-Dile is one of the best tools made! If I didn't have it, putting holes in the covers would have been TOO HARD to do! I put the big eyelets from SU! in the holes and used 3 1 1/2" ring binders to hold it all together. I put a package of baseball card holders inside, hopefully, I'll be adding more! I didn't do anything to the covers other than adding the paper, chipboard and bellies, the covers were already a pretty yellow.
I left the inside covers like they were, I thought it looked good!
Supplies: Paper - Crafty Secrets Pastel Paper Pad, SU! Regal Rose. Crafty Secrets Sweet Chips Chipboard - small heart and large heart from the Heart Album and Frames, bird from the Little Folding House, "I" and tag hand cut from a coaster, sheet music. Ink - Walnut crystals by 7gypsies, Glimmer Mist. Acces. - book covers, baseball card holders from Wal-Mart, pink twill, lace, rick rack, buttons, pom-pom ribbon, Scrabble tiles, SU! scalloped, hole and slit punches, foil leaves & bow.
