Topic: Fantastic Folds
I was recently reminded of the squash book structure which generally uses three squares of card scored and overlapped. I decided to try to create it using a single sheet of 12 x 12 inch cardstock.
To do this I scored at 3", 6" and 9" in both directions. Then I trimmed away three blocks in an L on opposite corners. Finally, each remaing block of four is scored on the diagnonal. I also used scraps from the cut-away sections to cover the front and the back cover, trapping a length of ribbon between to tie the book closed.
I printed and trimmed photos from our recent cruise to fill this book.
This may be a record for me, using cruise photos within a week of returning (this is a delayed posting - project was completed on 5/3/10)
