WS Designs scalloped brag book


 Today`s workshop is how to make a brag book using the scalloped envelope template by WS Designs

1. The finished brag book

2. Take your template and your sheet of backing paper you want to use – I have used the clover one form the Jane Netley Mayhew Cd – and printed it on a borderless setting and on both sides to save lining the book – I would use a pencil for this but for the workshop just wanted to use something that would show up – draw around the whole of the template

2.

3. Cut around the lines you have just drawn – and score across the lines which will be illustrated in your instructions

3.

4. I like to edge back and front with Sakura gold pentouch for added effect

4.

5. Now depending on how many pages you want – I have used an A3 sheet of card and cut it in half downwards portrait way – so you have 2 long lengths – score at half A5 points and fold all the score to create a concertina page – do this on both pieces of card and the take the first and last page of the 2 sheets and using double sided tape attach them together

Full details and photo`s are on this brag book  

5.

6. Use double sided tape again and on the back of the top page stick it to the inside of the envelope – you want it that the page folds are falling from the bottom

6.

7. Then decorate you book as you wish – I have just added the matching topper

7.

8. To secure the book you can either use velcro dots or as here apply a piece of double sided tape to the centre of the back of the envelope

8.

9. Lay a length of ribbon across the tape and place a topper over it to cover up the tape

9.

10. Close the 2 flaps up on the envelope and close the envelope

10.

11. Then tie it into a bow for a finished brag book

Thanks for looking in today
