A little while ago I made this filefolderbook for my neighbour. She turned 70, so I wanted to make something special for her. Browsing on the internet I saw 3 pictures of this book and I started crafting. Because I liked it so much, I decided to make a tutorial for you all.
Start with an A4 – cardstock and cut at 21 x 28 cm.
Score at 14 cm at the short side (therefore in the middle)
and at 2 cm at both the long sides.
On the longer sides, cut half of the scored lines opposite of each other.
Apply tape on the remainder at the long sides
Cut afterwards a corner.
Glue the page together.
Make as many pages as you need following the above (I made 10 pages).
Apply tape at the closed longest side of your pages, except for 1.
Glue the pages together, the inside of your book is ready.
Cut a cardstock at 30 x 18 cm.
Score at 14,5 cm on both short sides, this is the book cover.
Glue the pages between the book cover with wide sticky tape.
I cut out some tabs with my Silhouette.
Glue the pages together with some sticky tape.
You can attach the tabs on the glued area on the pages.
Create a lock by using some ribbon or Velcro.
Attach the other ends of the lock on the backcover.
Cover up with cardstock and designpapers.
Now decorate your book and enjoy!
I colored my Tilda with my Copics:
shoes: B91/93/95 and 100
A little bouquet of flowers and a dragonfly-charm.
and some droplets to embellish.
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial. If you made one, let me know, I would love to hear from you.
For the record, this wasn't my idea. I just made this after have seen a few pictures on the web. So if anyone needs to feel they have to claim it as their own, please let me know and I will give you credit for your design.
