More signature sheet designs for your lap books!

Being almost snowed in today, I set to work creating two new sets of signature inserts for the 5″x8″ lap books. The 1st Steampunk set I couldn’t choose just 4 designs so instead added 6 – well 5 and one sheet of lined paper. I printed all 6, then printed just page 6 on the backs of all the others…makes a great set! Click below for more info.

For the 2nd set below I created some Victorian styled frames and borders on the same paper texture background as the 1st – only a little lighter in shade. You can either print all 4 designs at once or multiples of your favourite design for each signature..makes a great addition. Click below for more info.

Adding Midori Style Pages in my 5″ x 8″ Lapbook

One of the final stages in my lapbook is to add some Midori style note pages using just 2mm elastic bands to hold them in place. No hole punching or stitching required in this easy to add section of my 5″ x 8″ lapbook. Click below to watch how I do it!

Stitching Signatures into my 5×8 Lapbook.

Today I’m playing in my 5″x8″ lap book again, this time I’m stitching in three 16 page signatures using a basic 3 hole pamphlet stitch. As the spine of my lap book is quite sturdy I don’t think it warrants a more complicated stitch to hold in the signatures. Once they’re all in place I’ll have 48 pages to use as a notebook or planner.

To position and make sure I get the holes in the right place I created an easy to use template, which you can download and keep for free! Click Here ==> dots

I do hope you enjoy the video and find it easy to follow. If you did, please give it a thumbs up, share with your friends and subscribe to my YouTube channel and blog for more videos and posts just like this one!
