Make it work Wednesday #12

RBCchipboard_SaK 001 Here we are already at MIW 12!  I also combined it with the Blogger Challenge over at the Rubbernecker Blog, to use chipboard or Grungeboard.  Today I am bringing you an idea that I found on another blog and will track it down and give credit.  How many times have you punched a punch out on a piece of scrap paper to lay over an image to see if it will work?  I am so excited about this project because now I don't have to to do this each time to find the punch that fits. I cut the black CS at ATC size (2 1/2 x 3 1/2") punched, labeled and laminated using my Xyron.  The chipboard book and dividers are from 7gypsies mini ringed book package.  I kept the cover very simple so I can throw it in my purse without having to worry about dimensional embellishments etc....  The cover technique is the same that I used on the post here.  I don't remember where I got the colored ring closures but the sticker strip on the binding is by Deja views.  The punches label was done on my dymo labeler and run over with a Copic marker E37.    I now have a book that can be added to& all my punches are  laminated in it.  I chose the rings instead of using a coil binding so that I can remove pages easily or add to my book.  I can also flip the book open and place an image underneath to see if it will fit.  If the image is on a large index sheet, I can pull it out of my book easily.  Make sense?
