January Artist Team Challenge Blog hop

Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop

Hi and Welcome to my blog this beautiful winter day!!  We have lots of gorgeous snow here in Montana and I am loving it!!

So this months challenge given to the Club Scrap Artist Team is to find interesting or unique ways to incorporate circles or other round elements into your project.

Mat board
Patterned cardstock
Modge Podge

Cut 6-4" circles from some mat board.  I just grabbed some cardboard from the recycle bin and used it, since I needed fairly thin mat board to work with my diecuts.
Cut 3 slider panels - these will fit inside the circle when closed, so just cut to fit.  I also cut some circular pieces to act as a spacer on the top and bottom on the circle, allowing space for the slider to easily slide in and out of the enclosure.
 Cut 6 circles from patterned cardstock.  I used ClubScrap Moroccan Spice kit.  Adhere these to the matboard circles using modge podge.
Cut cardstock to cover the sliders:

Flip over and mark the back side of each circle using these dimensions:
Since I do not like to measure much, I just created a template to these measurements and then traced around it on the rest of the circles:
 Next I cut the slider "handle" that is an oval-ish shape from all 6 pieces:
Ink all the edges:
Glue 'spacers to top and bottom on the backside of the circles.  Glue the two circles together.  Let dry.
Insert the slider and determine where its placement is just right to fit within the circle and adhere the 'handle' onto the slides:

Once all three circles are done, then punch 3 holes using cropodile as shown:
 Insert rings into the 3 holes.
Here is a photo of the 3 circles with the sliders partially coming out of their pockets:
Add ribbon to the the split rings and the handles:
Embellish the front of the book and inside it:
Here is the some photo mats on the inside of the booklet:

Here is the final:
