I´ve made a magnetic book.

I love when things are in its wright place, easy to find and to use.
With my dies that´s not the case.
I´ve had them in a little box and you can imagine it´s hard to find the wright one.
I saw a woman on the scrapmarathon who had a book with magnetic pages.
It was just beautiful. I never really understod how she got hold of thoose magnetic thing and I didn´t ask. I asked around and she had used the signs that you have to have on your car when you practice driving. In Sweden we call it Övningskörningsskylt :)

I found a scrappack that i´ve used for this book.
I glued my patterned papers on all sides of my pages.
In this case 4 pages.

I distressed all edges with walnut stain with my inkblending tool.
It has become one of my favorite tools to work with.
After that I cut the magnetic signs in 4 pieces each, 10x11 cm.
I´m only going to use 6 pieces for this album.

Offcourse you can glue patterned papers over the magnetic sign,
but I think that the black surface is ok.
This is how it looks when I put my dies in the book.
I see that I have to make a bigger one as well...

This is the outside when I started decorating it.
I only whanted to use the dies I put in the book as decoration.
Than it´s easy to find witch book you want.

Since it opens quite easily I decited to make a extra "lock".
On the inside of the first page I glued a magnet in the left hand corner.
I decorated it with a flower as it´s not that decorative..

On the back I glued a paper strip, 7-9 cm.
I glued a magnet on there as well and it closes really well.
To make it hold i used my hubbys superglue.

Now it´s done!
Just put thoose little extra details on there and it´s a fantastic book to bring to your scrapevents and show of to your friends.
It can be a good idea to glue things proparly!
Hope you´ll try this.
If you do, please let me know.
