On Voodoo Vixen's blog (Annette) when I was blopping via UK Scrappers recently, I came across some instructions for a gorgeous organiser she had made http://scraphappenshere.blogspot.com/ and so decided to have a go. I made the book using Blue Awning - K & Company paper - a pad of which I've had for quite some time but only stroked LOL. The instructions were great, except I think the spine piece should be 10" long not 9" to ensure you get enough places to put 4 envelopes, mine with the 9" only managed 3 of the envelopes but overall was still effective. I also changed mine from an organizer to a mini book!
When you open the book, you have a BIA minibook on the left and an envelope on the right, with a pocket at the front with two tags in. I've stamped the tags with both brown and blue ink (I love my blue roses) and used complimentary brown ribbons.
A shot of the mini book open (on the left) and the tag in the pocket on the right pulled out from its housing.
This is my favourite shot because of the way the spine works, you get glimpses of all the envelopes as well as the inside back cover - genius Annette!
Stood upright you see how effective this whole book is, I'm unsure of its suitability as an organizer for a teacher that would be used daily (Voodoo Vixen uses hers as an organizer for receipts and conversations but don't think it's an organizer used daily) I'm unsure if it would withstand the vigours of school life but as a mini book or something for yourself to be used at home, it is absolutely fantastic.
