i'm going to see my fave band ever, Phish, in VT in a week or so, and i made this little memory album to take with...so i can take little pictures (w/ my izone) and write down the sights, sounds, ideas, magic spells, set lists, addresses, lovely poems, you know ...from the weekend...i wanted to share...
this is the front...it has a line from a phish song, "this has all been wonderful, but now i'm on my way" the tickets for the show are really pretty w/ flowers/dandalions on them, which is why i did this w/ the yellow and flowers.


and this is the back, i sort of messed up, and did the holes/picture wrong, so the back is kind of "upside down" compared to the front, but again, i just used a phish lyiric, "twist around" to fix that. the back has a picture of the guys, and says, "whatever you do, take care of your shoes."


sorry, i don't know why the pictures look so big.
pretty simple, but i love it!

thanks again for the great idea! i've made so many of these, and i love them.

you just punch the holes on the left side of the book - through the top cover, the pages, and the bottom cover.  here's a picture of how the hair tie is threaded through.  this is the side view of the left side.



basically you fold it in half, thread it through the top hole from the front to the back, loop it around the back, and then thread it through the bottom hole from the back to the front.  stick the chopstick through the two loops sticking out of the holes on the top cover.  hope that helps!

i used a basic 3 ring punch for the first one i made. (i only used the first 2 holes of it though). The cardboard I used for the covers was thin enough to punch with that.
The second one i did, i used thicker card board, and ended up punching the wholes with a leather punch. it's mostly trial and error.

I used a regular 3 hole punch, but I punched it in sections - the covers, part of the pages, another part of the pages, etc.
