Thankful Thursday!

Hi Everyone!!

So, today is Thankful Thursday design.  We were challenged to make a movie themed project.  Well, I can't think of anything more fitting than the new Winnie the Pooh movie that just came out.  Here is my take on my thankful thursday movie inspired design.
This is a 6x6 tri-fold album I'm using to help my children remember their bedtime routines. 
you will need: 
3 sheets of 12x12 cardstock
12x12 sheet of K and I paper
1 pooh bear cut at 5".
atg gun
zig 2way glue pen

cut the 2 sheets of 12x12 cardstock in half.  score at 6" and 6 3/4"- all four sheets.  Glue a 5 1/4" x 6 side to the matching 6 x 6" side.  Repeat for the other card stock and glue together to make the book.  You can find a tutorial here to give you an idea of what I've done.
cut out and assemble pooh bear.
Cut your 3rd piece of card stock 5 1/2 x 4 1/2.  Score 1/2" in on the 4 1/2" side.  run your ATG along the little back flap of that to give you something that will stick like this:  You will have 4. (feel free to make more if you want more, you will just need more cardstock.)

On the front of the tri-fold, glue your pooh bear. (see my top photo for the one I did) punch a hold with your paper piercer and add your brad.

When the front is finished, cut your paper 1/4" shorter than the insides of the paper.  the left flap will be 5 3/4 x 5.  The right flap will be 5 3/4 x 5 3/4.    Putting the paper on the back AFTER you add your brad will hide the feet of the brad.

Mine is not complete yet but I will post a little more (and possibly a little more detailed) when I have the time. :)

Oh, before I forget, go check out Jenny!  She has prizes and you should go get in on that. :) The post-it prize is SO worth getting!
