My Smash Book Tutorial

A Video will follow but I wanted to post here in more detail sizes of paper, chipboard etc so that you can refer to them without having to watch the whole video over again!
So to make a smash book like the one previously shown you will need:

Sturdy Chipboard:
2 -off 9 1/2" x 6 1/2" for front and back covers
1 -off 9 1/2" x 1" for spine of book

Patterned Paper:
Preferably from a 12" x 12" sheet that is the cut into
Approx 35 - off 6" x 9" for the pages
2 -off 6" x 12" for the cover ( I cut a 12" x 12" sheet in half vertically to get a continuation of pattern on front and back of book)
2 -off 9 1/2" x 3" strips to cover outer and inner spine (I used offcuts from the pages)
1 -off 12" x 9" for inner covers and binding ( scored vertically at 6" along the 12" length the again 3/4" either side of the 6" score line)
2 -off 9 1/2" x 3" for inside covers pockets

Bind It All:
Wire size 3/4" (17 coils)

The of course any envelopes, tags etc that you want to add!
As I said video will follow so please keep a look out for it!
Thank you
