Pull-Out Scrapbook

by Corinne Somerville

Make this cute little book to show off your photos.


  • Two 4” x 4” chipboard coasters

  • One 4” x 10” piece of card stock for the front book cover

  • One 4” x 10” piece of coordinating patterned paper for the inside of the book cover

  • Two 3” x 12” pieces of cardstock

  • Three pieces of ribbon – 18” each piece

  • Extra sticky adhesive

  • Paper cutter

  • Scoring tool

  • Grid paper (optional but helpful)

  • 3/16” corner rounder


  1. Step 1

    Use the 3/16” corner rounder to round all four corners of two pieces of 4” x 10” pieces of paper.

    Run a strip of tape lengthwise through the center of the plain 4” x 10” piece of card stock and adhere one of the lengths of ribbon to the tape.

  2. Step 2

    Adhere two chipboard coasters onto the outer edges of the prepared piece from Step 1.
    Apply adhesive between the two coasters so that the patterned paper will be adhered along the spine of the book.

  3. Step 3

    To create the inside cover of the book, adhere second piece of 4” x 10” piece of patterned paper on top of the coasters.

  4. Step 4

    Score both pieces of 3” x 12” card stock at 3”, 6” & 9”.

    Adhere the two remaining pieces of ribbon in center of the farthest right hand panel of the 3” x 12” card stock.

  5. Step 5

    Adhere one of the 3” x 12” pieces of card stock to each side of the inside cover to create the “pull out” sleeves of the project.

  6. Step 6

    When both pull out sleeves are taped down, it will look like this.

  7. Step 7

    This is what the inside of the book will look like when the ribbons have been tied.

  8. Step 8

    Decorate the inside pages.

  9. Step 9

    Decorate the front of your scrapbook.

Hey there Corinne! Great job - been wondering how you make these great scrapbooks and look forward to doing one soon. Noticed you manage to get your beautifully manicured finger in there too! smile You rock!

Hi Lisa....here is where I got my coasters:
I'm sure if you did an internet search you'll find lots of business that might ship smaller quantities of these too...you can always spoof a few from your favorite tavern as they're exactly the same size/shape as the coasters they put under your drinks smile

Hope that helps smile

I'm assuming that the book is scored in the middle of the coasters and then folded to create the front. Did I miss something, or am I supposed to read between the lines?

Thanks for sharing this adorable project--you rock! I can't wait to try it out! For those of you who need coasters there are many different coaster quantites available on eBay (search for "chipboard coasters").

I love this tutorial!!! And, I made a variation using Bazzill library envelopes (top cut down to fit and re-rounded the corners) on the inside, instead of the accordian fold CS. I wanted pockets, so my grandkids could change out what they put in their mini scrapbooks.
Elsie  |  Wed Jun 18, 2008 at 12:06 PM
Hi Joan....you don't need to score between the coasters. When you tie the ribbon together it naturally creates the curve of what would be the spine of the book...hope that helps.

These are instructions are so easy to follow!! Great project. Thank you!
