Rolodex-altered mini comp book

Please check out my blog candy above!


I followed the tutorial Scrapdaworld put on youtube.  I used a mini composition book, you fold the pages in half. Then you put each cover straight out and glue the back to chipboard to hold it open. I then cut the sides down so its only 4 and half inches across instead of 6 and half. I traced the ends to make chipboard ends. I then decorated it with pretty papers and flowers, I added some charms. I just mailed this to my cousin, she is a Mary Kay consultant and I thought this would be great to add in all the business cards she gets. This only took a couple of hours to make, a whole lot more simpler to make than it looks.

I added these big gems to the bottom for feet.
