stitched mini book

I've been excited to try stab binding after seeing it on Pinterest and today I did, creating a little mini book to house pics and papers from our last vacation.
To create the cover, I printed the date & title on a toner printer and foiled it. The setting I used did not put quite enough toner down for all the foil to stick but I like the distressed look that resulted.

I cut all of my cardstock pages and memorabilia to 5-3/4 x 8.
I gathered the pages and held them together with clips. Then punched holes through the pages using a screw punch.

I stitched the pages together with twine using an awesome tutorial for Life Love Paper. (By the way, besides the binding tutorial, Life Love Paper has a cool blog and shop. Definitely check it out!)

This project came together so quick, was so easy and I love it! Can't wait to fill it with photos!


Hope you had a crafty Saturday too!

xo,
Carly
