Brag Book




This is a little brag book that I made last night using my Big Shot machine and the Top Note die. I ran a folded scrap of cardboard from a saltine box, and a folded piece of patterned paper, through the machine using the Top Note die. I then glued the patterned paper to the outside of the cover. for the inner pages, I basically did the same thing, using cardstock in Barely Banana and Kraft. I bound the book by punching 2 holes through all thicknessess at the fold, then tied a piece of ribbon through the holes to hold the pages together. I used a ribbon to tie the book closed, covering the ribbon with Not Quite Navy cardstock.
The label on the front is Barely Banana cardstock, with letters cut from scraps of Blue Bayou patterned paper using the Naturally Serif die & Big Shot machine. I added envelopes inside the front & back cover, cut using the Scallop Envelope die. I decorated the inside pages using Seeing Spots, Classic Stripes, and Fresh Cut stamp sets from Stampin' Up!
