Feelin' Crafty Wednesday: Disney Autograph Books

I've posted some of these before.  I made these ones about two weeks ago.  Since March is National Craft Month I thought I'd share with you how they are made.

The plain 6x6 books I got in a stack of 25 from Ebay.  The Tigger and the Pooh are cut using the Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge.  It's an oldie but a goodie.  I think the Tigger is 3 1/2 inches and the Pooh is 4 inches.  I used the Mickey Font cartridge for the names.  The background papers were part of a DCWV Disney stack. 

I used plain 12x12 paper for the inserts which I cut into quarters.  There are approximately 24 sheets in each book.  Before binding it with the Bind-it-all I slid both the front and the back covers into a page protector and sewed the open end shut using my sewing machine.  That what if there is an unexpected shower the book will be less likely to fall apart. 

The are bound with a 1 inch bind it all o-wire. 

If you make any, shoot me the link.  I'd love to see them.

Happy crafting!

Absolutely adorable! I love the idea of putting the covers on the book to protect them.
By the way, the turtles are coming!
But you know how slow turtles can be, hopefully not this time though. LOL
