Brag Book

Last Saturday I went to a wonderful workshop put on by my Stampin' Up! demo, Rosalie Gochnour (she's the greatest!). We made these adorable little brag books, using six paperboard CD folders, and covering them with DP from Stampin' Up! I chose the Sweet Always DP, trying to get out of my comfortable rut. Normally I'd never choose pink and orange, but I liked the patterns, and since my daughter does like those colors, I figured I could give it to her. ;-)

The neat thing about these little books is, you don't necessarily have to use them for photos. You could make a little book of favorite family recipes to give as a gift to a new bride, or whatever strikes your fancy. They really are so versatile!

After we covered the CD folders, we used some of the scraps to decorate the card inserts, and then embellished to our heart's content! You can easily get 2 books out of one pack of SU designer paper. There are 12 card inserts per book, but I'm not showing them all.
