Got Stamps?

If it can sit still, it can be stamped!

Squash Book

Here is a squash book that I made for my friend’s parents – so that they could add pictures of their new granddaughter. This is so easy it’s ridiculous! πŸ™‚ The directions are done so that you can use chipboard coasters as the front and back cover.


Basic Directions:

1) Cut 3 pieces of cardstock 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″. Stamp as desired.
2) Fold in half, open, fold in half the other way, open, fold diagonally – one time. Do this for all three pieces.
3) Lay out the pieces side by side, so that the diaganol fold line is straight up and down. We’ll call these Piece A, B and C.
4) Glue B’s left side square on top of A’s right side square. Glue B’s right side square on top of C’s left side square.
5) Mountain fold the diagonal fold for piece A and piece C. Valley fold the diagonal fold for Piece B. This will allow everything to squash together.
6) Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 4″x4″. Stamp as desired, use the corner rounder for the corners.
7) Affix to 2 chipboard coasters.
8) Affix the back of piece A’s left square to the back of one coaster. Affix the back of piece B’s right square to the back of the other coaster.

Embellish as desired!

***NOTE: If you would like to affix a ribbon to hold it shut, glue a long piece UNDER the cardstock for the front cover…then just wrap it around the back and tie to itself. This is the easiest closure.***
