Shhh, It's a Secret - Password Book

We made this cute little internet password book for a friend's birthday. The book itself was all handmade. Cardboard was cut to 9 x 5 1/2 and covered with paper from CTMH. The cover paper was cut an inch bigger than the cardboard so that it could be wrapped around the cardboard.  The front was decorated with ribbon before a complimentary piece of paper was cut to about a 1/2 inch smaller than the cardboard and placed on the other side of the cardboard to cover up the edges of the cover paper. (You can see a little bit of this on the picture of the tabs below).
The pages were created using Word and printed on a 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock (front and back) then cut in half. 
An SU! punch was used to create the tabs and CTMH letter stamps were stamped to make the index. Here is where you can see a bit of the greenish diamond paper on the inside back cover of the book.  Be sure to attach your ribbon before covering the inside back if you want to tie your book closed. 
This is a picture of the back cover.  The book was bound together using a bind-it-all.  (Have had the machine for years and never used it!!) Ribbon was tied to the coils.
My Favorite Things Pure Innocence girls were stamped on 1 1/2 inch squares and colored using Copics.  A bit a glitter was added to them and to the background paper.
SU! and CTMH ribbon was used as embellishments along with a strip of paper from the back cover.

If anyone is interested in the Word file for the pages, just e-mail and let us know.
