centerpiece mini scrapbook

This is a project that we made at our demo meeting last Saturday. I know it may not look like much when it's all closed up like this (especially since I haven't had a chance to decorate and personalize it yet) but it is so awesome inside! Just wait and see.

When you untie the ribbon the whole thing pops open into 4 little "rooms" That's why it makes such a perfect centerpiece -- each side of the table has its own little scrapbook vignette.

On each side there is a triangular pocket where you can insert a tabbed piece of card stock for even more scrapping or journaling! How fun!

Obviously this is not my idea or invention -- I learned it from Glenda who got he original design from another demo in the Stampahawlics -- a group that she belongs to and I just fall outside of. Let me tell you-- those Stamp-a-hawlics are a talented bunch! Glenda always comes back from their meetings with awesome ideas like this one.

I really can't wait to have a little free time so I can personalize this book with photos and journaling, but that will have to wait until after this weekend. Right now I'm just much too busy preparing for the craft show, mailing out class materials and designing classes for May!

More new stuff tomorrow!

Boo! I thought I made up this idea, and now I find it on your blog before I've even posted it on mine! I guess there is nothing new under the sun, right? :) I like to call this little guy a diorama album! :) Thanks for sharing - yours looks great!
