Abi's Birthday card my first board book card

I have seen lots of the kits around on american web sites, but the postage was prohibitive so I decided to make my own using 500gsm card which was 90pence for an A2 sheet, the ws design template letters, acrylic paints, glamour dust, 12 x 12" papers in co-ordinating colours and scraps of ribbon. The glittery flowers are from the k & co range sweet berry.

1. cut a strip of card the height of each letter template, you need 1 strip for each letter.
2. draw the letter on the right hand side of the piece of card, and cut around the outside edge of the letter.
3. line up the letters to form the name whilst holding them all in place turn them over & mark a line on the reverse. Cut each piece so they form the basic book shape.
4. using the off cuts if possible draw around each of the letters again that you need for the book, then paint these with a co-ordinating acrylic paint & leave to dry.
5. whilst they are drying cover each page with 12 x 12 backing paper both on the back & front then decorate the pages with your chosen embellishments.
6. When the acrylic paint is dry stipple a co-ordinating colour lightly over the top, sprinkle ultra fine glitter whilst the paint is still wet.
7. To assemble stick painted letters onto the pages, when dry line up all of the pages & punch 3 holes using the cropodile or similar.
8. Thread through the three holes an easy bind ring ( available at stationers ) & tie various colours and lengths of ribbon through the binder rings.

Cute book I've seen ones at the store and wondered if you could make your own to personalize it, and look you figured it out for me. Thanks for the instructions.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
