Meander Book

This is what they call a Meander Book...............I'm not quite sure why they call it that, other than maybe because when you fold the paper, it just kind of meanders from one side to the other...?

I made this cute little book for a friend of mine that lives in Maryland. She had purchased dsome retired Stampin' Up! sets from me and I thought I would make her a little "thank-you" gift. I used the tutorial by Beate Johns that is over on Splitcoaststampers. Basically all you need is 2, 3 1/2" coasters 1 piece of 12 x 12 cardstock, or Designer Series Paper, also enough paper to cover the inside and outside of the coasters, and something to attach it all together. Here I used my Bind-it-All. You could just as easily put it together with ribbons or binder rings, whatever your preference. I also used our new Raspberry Tart DSP. I LOVE this new paper. It is so vibrant and "Spring" looking. I also used some Prima flowers, a chipboard letter and some glitter for embellishments. I think it turned out really cute for a 1st time try at this one, and the best part, my friend Dawn loved it too!!!

Nice work. Your little book is so inspiring. I need to get busy using my Bind it All. My hubby gave me one for Christmas and I have been too intemidated to try it. Time to give it a whirl.
