It's time for the January Blog Hop starring the Constellations collection!
As soon as I heard the theme for the January kit, I knew I wanted to make a star book. I made one a number of years ago, and I liked it so much, I thought it would be fun to make another with Constellations.
The finished size is 6x6", and the pockets hold 4x6" photos.
Instead of paper clips, I punched holes and tied ribbons to connect the pages. I think it adds a bit of flair.
Rather than re-invent the wheel, I'll let Tricia walk you through the process in her TV Weekly video. I varied my project slightly from the video; I pierced my holes at .5, 1.5, 4.5 and 5.5" along the spine. I've included a list of supplies I used after the list of hoppers below.
Here's a complete list of our bloggers in case you get lost along the way. Be sure to leave a comment if you like what you see.
