This is my first Photo Book made with Unibind's Photo Book Creator and Double Sided Photo Paper. It is a book containing pictures from my Dad's 80th Birthday Party. I have one word for the Photo Binder... AWESOME! I gave the book to my Dad and Mom today and they just couldn't believe it! They were in such awe!!
I altered the book a little by first going all around the edge of the window cut-out with a black Sharpie, making the raw board black to match the black book. I couldn't stand seeing the raw board outlining the window! Then I cut out a piece of clear acetate a little larger than the window cut-out, used a corner punch and my exacto knife to curve the corner of the acetate to match the curved corners of the window cut out, and then glued it over the window cut-out onto the inside back of the cover. This was to protect the photo that would be showing thru the window. On the outside of the cover, I carefully glued a piece of metallic red rope all around the inside edge of the window cut out. Then I glued on the two balloons, strings and bow.
I had a blast making this book and can't wait to make more of them!! I know I included a lot of pics but I am just so excited how well this came out and wanted to share! TFL!!
Supplies used: Unibind Photo Book Creator, Unibind double-sided photo paper, clear acetate, metallic red rope, puffy balloon stickers (I think they are from the Card Company or something like that. I took them apart and used just two of the three balloons and glued everything on separately) and K&Co WackyTac glue.
