ABC Zig Zag Book

©Michele Emerson-Roberts 2015


Yes, I admit it, I have a TON of word stamps! I have collected them for years, and this project was the perfect venue to use them. This kit from Arnold Grummer made the project go together quickly. How many words can you think of for each letter in the alphabet?


 Supplies:

  • Any of the Arnold Grummer™ paper making kits
  • A sunny window
  • Blender, cello sponges and soft towels
  • Personal paper cutter, scissors
  • Beacon QuickGrab™ Adhesive
  • Scor-Tape™
  • Scraps of black paper (think junk mail, left over cardstock scrap, etc.)
  • One or more of AG  #2732 Original Zig Zag Book kit or kits or #2782 Tall Zig Zag Book kit or kits
  • Verbiage stamps and black ink pad
  • ColorBox™ Stylus™ handle and soft tip
  • Dies: Spellbinders’ Shazam alphabet set
  • Die cut machine: Spellbinders’ Grand Calibur
  • Thin strong black cord
  • Alphabet beads

Instructions:

  1. Follow the directions found in any of the Arnold Grummer™ paper making kits to create black slurry.
  2. Create several sheets of thick black paper.
  3. When the papers are dry, die cut the letters.
  4. Follow the instructions provided with the book kits to assemble the books.
  5. Add the black die cut alphabet letters to the left hand pages.
  6. Stamp the words on the right hand pages.
  7. Use the ColorBox Stylus™ to antique around the outside edges of the covers and pages.
  8. Add the cord and beads as the book’s closure.
