I made two of these for my mom and MIL for Mother's Day.
Cover: 4-1/4 x 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4.
Pages: 4 x 8 inches, scored at 4.
Punch 2 holes on the fold of each page and cover, about 3/4 in from the edges. Punch pages first, then line up pages with cover to punch cover. Use 1/16" punch for cord, 1/8" for ribbon. Thread cord and/or ribbon (I used a strand of narrow organdy and a strand of silver cord) through holes, tying on outside. Embellish front then add 3-1/2" square pics to each page. Journal w/ at least names and dates on each page. I cased the sqare card on the In Full Bloom inspiration sheet for the cover. (Left out the hemp twine.)
I used 2 sheets of the 4 x 8 paper for one book for 8 pages, and 3 sheets for 12 pages for the other. I'm putting a pic of each grandchild (my kids & their cousins) in the books. (MIL has more grandkids than my mom.)
