I had to do two!
I won this paper at Kansas City's Creating Keepsakes Convention in 2009 and never used this paper. I had won more than my share, so I split this pack with my bff, Tricia :-) This is the first time I'd even cut into one single piece!
Just click on the tree at the top of this post & follow the directions! It'll help us all breath a little easier :-)

Each book measures 10" x 7" and contains enough pages to make a dozen layouts with a hard back.
A little instructions: use a Cricut Expressions with deep blade & Indie Art cartridge; cut file folder in half along the bend; insert one half of folder into machine on mat; select the butterfly & fit to page, note max size & round DOWN to nearest whole inch; set cut size to that whoe inch number for all of your cuts, this way they will all be the same; cut number of file folders as you would like pages in your book, you are only limited to the size of the rings you get to hold it together; there you go, that's the basic book. Since I was giving these to friends as gifts, I went ahead & decorated just the front cover for them, they can do the inside of the book how they want it to be
