Update 12/4/2008: The link on Creating Keepsakes/Simple Scrapbooks is no longer available. I've tried searching for instructions to no avail. Here are the materials that I used and a little information I can remember...
I used Scotch Self-Sealing Laminating Pouches (for 8 1/2 x 11) that I purchased at Wal-Mart. The clear binding/lacing I purchased from Hobby Lobby. I used my crop-a-dile to punch the holes. I created the layouts and when inserting them into the pouches, made sure the adhesive side was on the back of the layout. I cut the pouches for the sides down to 4" wide x 8 1/2" long and the bottom down to 4" wide x 11" long and rounded the corners. I purchased the handles from Hobby Lobby and attached them with metal rings through large eyelets I got in the sewing department.
If you have any other questions, please let me know. Pamela
Here is where you can find the instructions for this scrapbook purse/tote...
Finally! I've been wanting to make one of these purses for months...ever
since I saw a fellow consultant making them at a scrapbook retreat I went to in
June. I came home from that retreat and purchased everything I needed to make
one and then never got around to it...probably because I was so busy having a
baby and making the adjustment. Ü
Anyway, I finally sat down last week
and made my first one after seeing one that a church friend had purchased from
another individual. If you like it and want more information about them, holler
at me...I'd love to show you how to make one or make one for you! ÜHere's to a wonderful day...make it from your heart! Pamela
