A Book of Authentique Quotes

Authentique Paper and Core'dinations are teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Core'dinations products!

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Core'dinations blog to find out what the talented members of the Core'dinations Design Team have in store for you today!

**********


 For this project I made a mini album for myself. The paper is so nice and thick you can make easily make your own mini and it will not tear up! That is one of the things that I loved about Authentique Paper when I first saw it!

I know I've said it before, but I love quotes! I thought it would be fun to make something involving the quotes that Authentique uses in their paper collections.  

I tried to pick a collection to use for this project, but I decided that I couldn't just choose one. So I decided to use all of the papers Authentique has produced so far!


For the cover of the mini album I used three collections: Uncommon, Gathering, and Carefree. It is so much fun to mix these papers! A great way to think out of the box!


And for the inside I used every collection with a quote that belongs with the paper collection. I made my mini a little bit thick so it can grow! For the binding I simply used some rings, so it is easy to add pages to it.


It was so much fun to choose the photo's to go with the quotes!

Here's the inside of the mini with all of the collections.
I cut out all of the pages of the mini with the Core'dinations cardstock.






Last, I want you to show how you can make the flowers with the Core'dinations cardstock:
1. Cut a strip of paper 12 inch x 3/4 inchand sand it
2. Cut a thin fringe along the paper strip, but leave a tiny part uncut.
3. Add some glue (Quick dry)on the uncut part of the strip and roll up.
4. Wait untill it's dry and roll the fringe, begin at the outside
