Sketch Book

Card Making & Scrapbooking Sketch Book

I wanted to make a Sketch Book that I could add & remove pages easily. I couldn't find what I was looking for so I made it. I started with 4x6 index cards. I used some lined ones & some blank ones. Once I start using it I will decide if I want the lined ones. I made it 4x6 so a card sketch can all most be real size. I didn't have a double hole punch so I adjusted my 3-hole punch. Use the middle hole punch & move a side into 3". So the holes are 3" apart and 1 1/2" from each edge of the card. To hold the book together I used 1" book rings. I have about 100 pages in my book.

Each divider is also cut at 4x6. The Tabs are cut at 2" from Fabulous Finds Cricut Cartridge. I designed it on my Gypsy & cut 3 tags with inserts in one color & 3 more tags with inserts in another color to alternate the colors of the 6 tags. To attach them I used a large eyelet.
The cover patterned paper is from K&Company. The butterfly I embellished with gel pens & stickles.
This is a real cute, simple, practical project for you to make. I can't wait to start sketching designs for cards and scrapbooking layouts.
