- Plain chipboard cut into three pieces: 2 pieces that are 4.5"x5", 1 piece cut to 4.5"x1.75" (I used a sheet of plain 12"x12" chipboard)
- 1 - 6"x12"piece of patterned paper
- 1 - 10.5"x4.75" piece of coordinating patterned paper (you can just use a piece of double sided patterned paper to make both)
- 3 - 1" binder rings
- Heavy duty hole punch with a long reach (I used a WRMK Crop-A-Dile Big Bite)
- REALLY good adhesive
- 4"x4" pieces of double-sided patterned paper (for album pages, so as many as you'd like)
And of course since it would be unfair to make one for my son and not for my daughter, here is the girlie version. I let my kids pick out the cupcake stickers for the covers. The strips at the top are patterned bar code strips - such a great idea from American Crafts so that nothing goes to waste!
