M5D new image release and a Step by Step Tutorial

Good Morning I hope every ones weeks has been great thus far. I have been busy putting this book- box/card together. I saw it somewhere out in blog land a while ago and it's been on my to-do list forever. I really wish I knew where I saw it so I could give that person credit for their creativity. I used one of McMahon Five Designs newest digi called "Mommies Hat". Isn't she adorable? I just love her big fluffy feather.
Supplies Needed
Heavy paper (I use Canson water color paper)
Scissors/paper cutter
Scoring tool
Glue/Double sided tape
Decorative Punch
Designer paper
 cut 2 pieces of your water color paper measuring 10cmX 24cm
cut 2 more pieces of water color paper measuring 12cmX 24cm
(sorry the penny is just a focal point for my camera)
Score all the way down the long side at
2cm, 4cm, 6cm, 8cm, 10cm, 12cm, 14cm, 16cm, 18cm, 20cm, 22cm
Follow these directions on all 4 pieces
When you score and fold they should look like an accordion
If you prefer to ink them do so now before gluing
Take one of the 10cm pieces and one of the 12cm and stack the folds
Glue just the end flaps
This show the flaps on both sides
Make sure you hold it firmly until the glue is dry
Follow the same directions with all 4 pieces
When it's all glued together it should look like this.
Just a side profile showing the inside and out.
Cut 2 pieces of the water color paper measuring 12 1/2cmX 3cm
Cut another 2 pieces of water color paper measuring 10.16cm or (4 inches) X 3cm
(Sorry I forgot to write X 3cm on my picture)
Take your decorative punch and punch all 4 pieces and ink them up
When you glue them onto the box they should look like this
Just a side profile
Cut a piece of you water color paper measuring 9 1/16 in X 4 13/16 inch
Score at 4 1/16 inch and 5 inches
This will be the book cover
(Oopsies I just realized I switched from cm to inches)
Cut out panels for all sides of the book cover
Before gluing you cover on glue one strip of your lace or ribbon
Follow these direction for the inside bottom glue the ribbon and cover it with your decorative paper
Glue down your panels and book to the right side of the book cover
embellish as desired
I really really hope you give this a try and if so I would love to see your creation.
 Good luck and have fun!
Hugs Bonnie
