Zuttter my ShortCuts!

Well I'm a very lucky girl because I have a friend who has everything and she lets me borrow her things!! This week I wanted to make a little colouring book with a clear cover and back, so I borrowed my friends Zutter machine. I started by making a card box (template from The Cutting Cafe) and I used ShortCuts frosted sheet to make the box top. That way it's a little foggy as to what's inside the box. Next I printed the NoteCut 1 also from ShortCuts and used to as a journal box for the cover.
Now as for the colouring book inside I printed digital stamps from Whimsie Doodles and cut them into rectangles (about the size of a standard card). I also cut ShortCuts clear sheets the same size for the front and back covers of my book.
Put it through the Zutter and ta daaaa I have a mini customized book!


Here is what you'll find in this fun little box.

Frosted and Clear sheets-ShortCuts
NoteCut 1-ShortCuts
School things Digital stamps-Whimsie Doodles
Zutter and coils-Bind it All
