Above is the example that I snapped in the store and it was made with the Door County Line of papers exclusive of the Door County Rubber Stamp Store. Anyway I searched the Internet and Pinterest trying to find this type of card and came up with numerous video's for the Squash book but all of the ones I saw was using 3 pieces of paper. When the book was finished the inside squares measured 4 x 4. Well I knew the one I saw was a 3x3 so I searched that and also came up with tutorials where you used 3 pieces of paper. In my mind that's ridiculous since your pages were 3x3 you could just score and cut a 12 x 12 sheet. so that's what I did. One 12x12 sheet of cardstock scored at 3, 6, and 9 rotate and score again at 3, 6, and 9. Then 1st row cut off the last 2 squares, 2nd row cut off last square, 3rd row cut off 1st square and 4th row cut off first 2 squares. Should look like this:
Now fold top left corner to the center and the bottom right corner to the same center. Crease well. Should look like this:
Open again and take the top left corner and fold it to the bottom right corner making the paper completely folded in half. Like this:
Now go back and crease all the fold lines. Making sure they are well creased. It should look like this.....yes I changed papers because those pinkish ones are for my granddaughter and she wanted to fold them. We had a couple folding issues and had to start over.
And when completely folded it's a little 3x3 squash book. On the outside squares seen on far left and far right is where we will be putting the 4x4 covers.
Cut 2 squares 5.5 x 5.5 from DSP of Choice and cover 2 cardboard squares that measure 4x4. This will be the front and the back covers. Cut 10 Squares of DSP measuring 2 3/4 x 2 3/4. 6 of these will be cut in half diagonally. Attach each to the inside squares and embellish. Easy Peasy!! I know a couple ladies that just might dive in and give this a try.
Here's my first one and of course its with more scraps of my Graphic 45 papers but I'll probably use up some of my Recollection papers too on another one.
And of course here's the one my granddaughter and I made for Fathers Day. She like it better when I'm doing the same one so the one I made went to my Husband from our youngest son. The Graphic 45 Sport Collection worked real well with this.
This was mine to my hubby.
Here's Tori's for her dad.
As I said the Graphic 45 papers worked wonderfully. Love using scraps! Well that's it for today. Going to try making another with Recollection papers. A more bright colored one!
