Welcome to Day Three of our Zutter Zummer blog special. Today's Zutter Zister project comes from Camilla Isaksson of the beautiful country of Sweden! She's hopped on board the "smash book" craze - and brought her Bind-it-All along for the fun!
Ok, I admit, at first, I didn´t really get the smash book thing...What is it? What´s all the fuss about!?
After a little investigating and playing, I totally get it, and I had to make my own. A smash book is a totally fun, easy way of memory keeping. It's basically a little scrapbook/journal on-the go. No rules or "musts" to the content or design, you add your thoughts, ideas, memories, and notes along with simple embellishments and SMASH them all together!
So to make my own version of this fun idea, I used the Zutter Clear Acrylic Folder Tabs (7,5"x5") as a base for my smash. Then I cut out a lots, and lots of patterned paper. I put in homemade envelopes to store some tickets, diecuts and other things. The envelopes I made my self from a toturial that a swedish girl, called Ami made. See her envelope tutorial here (in Swedish...) Envelope tutorial Or, you can use the Scor-it-All Envelope Template and cut your own as well.
On the tabs, I put some sentences, like "just smash it" - but you could use other journaling prompts like "always remember", "for today" or whatever motivates you.
Here is the homemade envelope.
It´s easy to punch holes in the Zutter acrylic with the Bind-it-All - the Zutter acrylic is just the right thickness and flexibiity for the tool without damaging either. You can also make the holes in the acrylic with Rivet hole punch set and the Pound-it-All. (these tools are on sale, by the way! here)
The acrylic really puts a unique twist on the project! Hope you make yourself a smashbook!
