free download and a tutorial :: address book pages

8.23.2010  at 8:00 AM
If you've clicked over, hello SEI Lifestyle blog readers!

This DIY address book was a project that I featured during my guest blogging week at SEI Lifestyles last week. I offered to post the free address book pages download on my blog this week if there was any interest from the post...and there was! I'm so happy to share these with you today.

Okay, now that you've downloaded your address book pages, you'll need to decide what size your address book will be. I decided upon a 6"x6" size, since I was using the SEI paper pads. When I designed the pages, I left plenty of room to use binder rings, ball chain, ribbon, Bind-it-All o-wires or even a stapler to bind it all together.


Assuming you've decided your album will be 6"x6" also, your first cut will be at 5.75" if you're printing on an 8.5" x 11" piece of paper. Then rotate the page so that your next cut {between the two page templates} will be at 5.50". 



Still haven't downloaded your pages, quick...click here to be taken to the download.

I didn't use alphabetical tabs in my address book, but I think that would be a great idea. They would be so cute peeking out of the top of the book!

To create my address book, I used one of my favorite tools ever...the the Bind-it-All by Zutter. For the ribbon bow you see, I tied a knot around the rhinestone brad before inserting it through my pierced hole.

And you're finished. So easy, so cute and so useful. How often does that happen all in one sentence?

If you'd like to know how to use those long strips of paper we had from our first cut, scroll down in this post to see another DIY idea!


Thanks for stopping in!

  7. So you love the Bind It All, huh? I teach third grade and was eyeing ti for my class. I think they'd love to make books as a way to "publish" their writing. Hmmm, I'll have to investigate!
