One of my goals this year was to get myself a good address book, so I could get all my friends' information in one easy-to-find (and use) place.
When I saw this phone stamp from Studio Calico, I knew exactly what I was going to make.
I took a 4x4 Maya Road chipboard binder, and some goodies from my stash and went to work.
To cover it up, I used a vintage bingo card. I got a big pack of honest-to-goodness vintage bingo cards from the Freemont Sunday flea market last summer. They have a little old paper funk smell, but I love the way they look. I took one of the more distressed ones and trimmed it to fit on the front of the binder.
A small strip of eyelet punched black cardstock went on the left side of the cover. I then overlaid a strip of gaffer tape (cut slightly with pinking shears) on top of both cardstock and bingo card.
And here's the finished front cover again:
So that's my lovely project for this week... it felt good to get my hands on some paper again. I've been doing so much digi-work and photo editing that I was worried I'd forget how to use my scissors!
Hope you enjoyed the book!
