On to the tutorial -
I made these last week and was asked how I did it.
I'm sure there is an easier way but this is how I went about it:
Tear the cover off the front & back and draw your vase shape. It's easier when you keep the shape simple.
I use scissors and cut more than one page at a time. Depending on your design, you might need a straight razor for tight cuts.
Next step, bend back the spine, fan it out and figure out where you want to glue it.
I tried quick dry glue and it didn't hold. The ol' hot glue gun to the rescue (again)! It should look something like this after you glue the two ends together. Fan all the pages out again until they are spread out all the way around.
This is when I snip the pages that are sticking out a little further than others (I see one in this picture). And keep in mind, my version is not perfect. These are like the Christmas tree, you have to put the bad side to the wall.
If you try this, I'd love to see how it turned out. I'm off to start my week - take care!
I'm going to party with Met Monday at BNOTP - lots of cool stuff to see..
