The binding was simply done by (1) laying each bag flat and folding the bottom in half to form a 1-1/2" spine, (2) laying all 5 bags together, (3) covering the spine with a paper of your choice, cut 3-1/2" wide x 3-1/2 tall (I used Always Artichoke, run thru the Big Shot with Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder, and scallop punched at the edge...it was just a scrap!), (4) punching 3 evenly spaced holes down the spine with the Crop-A-Dile (you may want to hold it all together with a binder clip or two, so your papers don't slip), (5) then I put a fancy vanilla brad from Stampin' Up!'s Hodge Podge collection in the center, and ribbons through the outer two holes with a ribbon anchor in the back. Here are shots of the spine...
Inside each bag was a Christmas tag from Ali Edwards at Designer Digitals. I love her, she makes memory keeping simple and gorgeous! Anyway, each tag prompts the scrapper to record a moment and date. Perfect, easy scrapping! Here is the set...
