Simple Brag Book – Claire Dennis

“Simple Brag Book.

This simple little brag book is perfect for collecting those memories to share with others, or make as a gift. It’s a quick make that leaves you plenty of time to spend filling it with your memories.

Things you’ll need:
-3 sheets of 12×12 scrapbook paper
-1 sheet of thick card
-Mama Makes washi tape
-Mama Makes Hexagon Heaven stamps
-Mama Makes Hello Adventure stamps
-Mama Makes Funky Borders stamps
-Several lengths of ribbon
-Strong glue/red liner tape

Start by cutting your scrapbook pages in half, then fold each half over to create 6, 6×6 size pages. Then take your sheet of thick card and trim to 6×6 size (saving the excess for later!). Fan fold this piece 9 times to create the spine of the book. You should have 6 points to create the pages with. Then use your excess card to glue onto the outside of the spine to close up the gaps and create a solid spine.
Take your pages and stick the open ends to each side of the points on the inside of the spine so it closes up each page. You now have your book!
I have used Washi tape to decorate the front and spine, and tied ribbons through the page seperations to hide any joins on the pages. I’ve also used Mama Makes stamps to embellish my book, cutting out sentiments and instant photos and cameras to decorate the front. You can do any design you would like to fit your theme. You could even size this up to full 12×12 size pages and make a scrapbook.

Enjoy showing off your memories!”
