Smash Book Tutorial

Hello Friends, 
Today for the first time I'm posting a step by step tutorial. I have tried to do my best. I was little scared while doing this because it was out of my comfort zone. I have made the tutorial of a Smash book.


Step by step tutorial -

Step 1 - Cut a 10*7 inch cardstock. I have usedd black CS. 

Step 2- Take 2pcs of  ribbon and attach it on front as shown in pic.

Step 3- Glue the pattern paper on the front so that the glued ribbon can hide. I made a punch hole and added a brads on it.

Step 4- Now I have glued the patter paper on backside of the base.

Step 5- Cut 2pcs of big vertical pannnel measuring 7 3/4" by 3 1/2" and score 10mm on top & bottom of the pannel. Now glue the vertical pannel on the back of base as shown in pic. Add pattern paper on it.

Step 6- Now cut 3 vertical pocket measuring 5 1/4" * 3 1/4" (1pc), 4 1/4" * 2 3/4"(1), & 3 1/2" * 2 1/2"(1) & cut 3 pattern papers to glue on them as show in pic.

Now mount this pocket on left side of the book as shown in pic.

Step 7- Now cut 3 horizontal pocket pcs measuring 4 1/4" * 2 1/4" and do the same as privous step. See the pic for refence.

Step 8- Finally made few tags for the book. 

Finally arranged the tags on the pockets and Smashbook is ready.
If any doubt then please let me know.

Hope you liked it.
