2. Cut 3 pieces of Early Espresso card stock 7" x 7". Score each piece at 3 1/2" top to bottom, score 3 1/2" from side to side, you now should have 4 squares on each 7" square. Score once diagonally from corner to corner. Fold on Scored lines and attache with sticky strip to the coasters. Note~ refer to 2nd picture for folding.

Decorating the cover~

3. Cut 1 piece of More Mustard card stock 3 3/4" x 3 3/4". Sponge the edges with More Mustard ink. I placed Stampin Dimensionals on the back and attached to the front of the coaster. Note~ before attaching to the cover lay your ribbon down that you will use to tie your book closed.

4. Cut 1 piece of Sahara Sand card stock 3 1/2" x 3 1/2". Using he Sanded Background Stamp I inked it in Sahara Sand and stamped onto the piece of card stock. Then using the dog bone and paw stamp I stamped randomly in Baja Breeze and More Mustard. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink. I placed 2 Pewter Jumbo Eyelets off to the left.

5. Cut 1 piece of Baja Breeze card stock 1 3/4" x 3 1/2". I ran it through the Big Shot using the Texturz Plates Background 1 with the diamond pattern. Using the Scallop Edge Border Punch I punch out the bottom. I took the Early Espresso marker and made little circles in each scallop. I sponged the edges with Baja Breeze ink. I took some Natural Hemp twin, wrapped around twice and tied a knot. I also placed Stampin Dimensionals on the back of this.

6. Cut 1 piece of Early Espresso card stock 2" x  2 1/4"

7. Cut 1 piece of Sahara Sand card stock 1 3/4" x 2". I stamped the dog in Early Espresso ink and sponged the edges with Sahara Sand ink. I then snailed it to the step above and placed Stampin' Dimensionals on the back. To finish it off I stamped one of the dog bones in More Mustard on Sahara Sand card stock, cut it out and popped it up with a Stampin' Dimensional.

My base is Crumb Cake card stock. I used the stamp from the Charming Set inked it in Crumb Cake and stamped around the edges. I then sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges. On the right I cut a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock, I used the Scallop Edge Punch on it and then punched holes in each scallop using the Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. I sponged the edges with Daffodil Delight ink.

I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock and a piece of DSP Newsprint. I took the stamps again and stamped in Crumb Cake and the butterfly in Daffodil Delight. Using a Sponge Dauber I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. I then wrapped 1 /8 Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon around the bottom. In the upper left hand corner I added 2 Vintage Brads. To finish it off I added my little medallion that I created I stamped the image in Basic Black on Very Vanilla card stock and punched it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.
