Supplies:

  • I used the Thorny Rose peg stamp setHere are some other rose peg stamps & sets you might like.
  • Dye ink (Memento)
  • Ink blending brush
  • Pattern paper (Joann Fabrics Park Lane patterned cardstock)
  • Paper fasteners (aka brads) I got them from Staples and painted them with nail polish:)
  • Scalloped circle (2″) and regular circle punch (1.5″) or dies or hand cut
  • Scallop edge scissors
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scoring board (Scor pal)
  • Double stick tape and foam tape
  • Thin white paper or thin scrapbook paper with a white back you want to use up.
  • Heavy duty punch (crop a dial) or an awl you can poke through all of the paper layers.

Directions/measurements

  1. You can get 4 booklet covers from a 8.5″x11″ cardstock. Score the cardstock first. Score at 3.5″, 4″ and 7.5″ (you are scoring parallel to the long side of the paper so that last score is 1″ from the edge.)
  2. Cut the scored piece of cardstock in quarters so you have 4 pieces of 2.75″ x 8.5″ pieces of paper. When you fold on the score marks you will have the matchbook cover.
  3. Your inside pages will be 2.5″x3″ and I use 3 pieces of 12″x12″ thin scrapbook paper to get the pages for 2 books. You can make them as thick as you like, you just might need to punch your booklet papers in batches.
  4. Follow the video for full directions!

I hope you enjoyed this stash busting project and til next time happy crafting!
