I made this meander book so I could shoot a video tutorial for the little book. We had several questions about how to fold those pages.

The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants All Fall paper pack. Ribbon is from Stampin’ Up!, Flower from Daisy Doodles Prima Flowers, the button from Basic Grey. The button was threaded with waxed linen. I love that thread. It’s a bit sticky so you just have to tie it once and it sticks!

The sentiment is from Unity’s Bevy of Butterflies. It was stamped in Walnut Stain Distress ink on White cardstock. Floral Edge was stamped over it with Old Paper ink. The sentiment was then glued in an Ornate plate and attached to the book front.


The inside pages were created from a Chatterbox paper. They were stamped with the Floral Edge stamp in Shabby Shutter and layered with a 2 1/2″ square of Chocolate Chip cardstock. I left the right side blank for photos. The left side was layered with a sponged and stamped piece of Vanilla cardstock that was stamped with a swirl from Growing in Unity in Frayed Burlap.

Here is the video for the Meander book:

If you would like to see one of those Meander books up close and personal, add your info to this Mr. Linky. I will raffle the two meander books I made for this tutorial away. I will pick winners on Wednesday around noon EST.
