Meander Book, My Way!

I love these little books, the "Meander Books".  I usually see them in a 3" x 3" size.  But, I thought that I would like one a little different size, so I came up with this one.  It measures 3"wide  x 4" tall, when the covers are added,  it is 3 1/8" x 4 1/4".    I haven't finished decorating and embellishing yet, but will do it soon!
Using this size, it created three "top" pockets and 2 "side" pockets.  I covered some chipboard pieces measuring 3 1/" x 4 1/4", and used these for the covers.  I adhered ribbons between the covers and the first base pages for a closure.  The base paper is cardstock from Martha Stewart, the other papers are from DCWV.  I fell in love with the colors, perfect for a baby boy or a baby girl!  I thought this would make the most adorable brag book for the new Mom or Grandma!!! I made three tall tags for the top pockets, and 4 smaller ones for the side pockets.  These would be awesome for journaling!
Score the 12x12 paper vertically at 3", 6", and 9".  Score horizontally at 4" and 8".  Make your slits on the horizontal lines.  Fold, and adhere the base pieces to create the pockets.  Adhering the pockets creates a binding, so no extra work to do that.  There you have it, a beautiful little book. 

Stay Crafty!!
