so a little while back i mentioned making my own december daily album, its pretty easy and i've done it before ... also i'm to cheap to buy the mini ones alot of the time. so i started today with the goal of wanting to accomplish something crafty .... why doesn't an album cover fit that bill perfectly ..
then i had some issues. so we'll start with the final product ...
now i know this one doesn't have any loose leaf rings attached to it, i have a big bite so once i go and purchase the rings i can punch in the holes and eyelets (they make for a cleaner finished looking wholes ... that will last longer) and place them some where in the spine. the cut 6x12 page protectors leave 2 holes so i'll probably be using those as my guide marks. the trick here is to punch the two holes at about the 1/3 mark in so the ring fits through as well as the pages .. but it's not always an easy fit ... you need large eyelets so the hinge on them can slide through ... talking experience here. there's also the more classical scrapping ways to bind the book here. the cool think i like about this "album' is that is has that finished look to it that isn't usually done with other mini albums with the ring bindings.
now this example sucks and i have shown all my flaws. i do think i will be re-doing this project for a more clean professional end result. but sharing all the same. :)
