Boy Name Book

Hello blogger world. I know its been a while since I have posted a new book. Well now that school is back in for my kids I have been super dupper busy. Here is a recent book that I completed for a client of mine. As you can see I used the Superman Cricut Cart for the character cut at 6inches. The letters were from the Jasmine Cart cut at I think 5 1/2 inches. I have been asked by several of you all out there how I put together these books. To be honest I have tried to put it in writing form but cant seem to remember to write everything down at the time. So I've decided to try my best with this book. 1st I cut all the chip board to the size I want, this book measures 6 inches tall and 12 inches long. each spach between the letters are measured at 2 1/2 inches apart (with this I kinds just wing it until I think its spaced far enough apart). From there I cover all the chipboard with DP I use spray adhesive because it works the best for me. Once the book is all covered then I just cut out the Cricut shapes or letters all at the same size. Then I adhere them to each one of the flaps. Last once the book is complete I embelish and put the matting on each. The mini flaps in between I put just to add more photos. There is really no rhyme or reason to the wideth I just make sure that the height fits properly. I punch holds in the side with my Crop A Dial, add 3 rings and ribbon and walla its complete. I hope this helps all of you out there. If you have more questions I will do my best to answer them.Thanks again all of you that have supported my blogg and been followers. One day I hope to do a video of the whole think. Well until this everyone. Take care.
