Best Dishes Cookbook - The Grand Finale

So it's finally here.  After all that work, we are about to finish up.  This has been a long project, but I am very happy with the way it turned out.  I truly hope my sister enjoys this book.

Supplies:
Binder rings (3) - 2"
Completed Pages
Heart Charm - Cousins brand from Walmart Jewelry section
Photo pages - see master supply list post
Tim Holtz embellishments - "love" large key, large swivel clip, 2 trinket pins, "lifetime" muse charm
Tim Holtz ink - terra cotta alcohol

Tools:
Tim Holtz tools - ink applicator tool


Instructions:
  1. Using Tim Holtz Terra Cotta alcohol ink and applicator tool, ink the rings and set aside to dry.  Once dry, you are ready for the next step.
  2. Divide the photo sheets between each page divider and begin binding the covers and the page protectors.  I like to start in the center, and then go to the outer holes.
  3. Once the book is bound, it is time to embellish.  Open up the 2 trinket pins and place a heart charm on one and the lifetime muse trinket on the other.  Open out the large swivel charm.  Add the embellished trinket pins and the muse key to the charm.  Attach charms on the top ring, allowing them to hang to the front.

Enjoy Your New Book!
