Month In Numbers

...as promised, the results of yesterday's EfemeraInk meeting. Most got theirs finished and some had time to add their photographs.

The book is basically five gatefold cards stuck together and a cover added. Cut five pieces of card 28x14cms and one piece 30x14cms, this one is your cover.Score all pieces 7cms from each end, on the larger piece score again 8cms from each end, this gives a spine of 1cm.Fold the five pieces and glue together,glue the centre piece to the cover...fold in all your pieces, starting from one end to the middle and then the other end to the middle............you will now have to really squish everything flat..takes some doing but it will eventually lay flat.



you can alter the measurements to make any size book...
Here's mine, I used it for my Month In Numbers...


I wasn't sure how to tackle this...long wordy posts are not my thing...


Just show me the pictures....

That's a super book, there's not a thing not to like about it.

And the 70p ... very British humour!
