Sunflowers and Dragonflies 7 anything but a square

Well this week the challenge at Sunflowers and Dragonflies is to create something shaped any shape but a square, instead of a card this week I decided to do a mini album with a short tutorial for everyone my pages have all been cut out using my Cricut and the George Basic Shape cartridge I cut octagon for my cover at 5 inches other shapes were cut at 4 1/2 to 5 Inches bright colored paper
 I ran the covers through the cuttlebug using the Happy Birthday folder with Core'dination card stock which was than sanded
Next I got out my Xyron and applied adhesive to the backs of the covers
next we are going to put our book together you are going to punch holes in your pages using the Bind-it-All
 You are going to put your back cover on the coils first than front and than your pages now put your book back in the machine set to the size of your coils and pull the handle easy peasy and this is what you will have
Now you can decorate it any way you like I will share a couple of my pages with you do give you an idea

OMG, talk about an awesome tutorial. Nice and detailed with great photos. I laughed when I saw how you cut out the shape. Having George as well, it never occurred to me to do what you did. Dahhh. I'm going to see what I can come up with now that you got me interested. Your colourful project is so much fun!!
