BoBunny & 3L Blog Hop "Squash Book"

If you hopped from the BoBunny Blog, then you are in the right place!!
I was browsing Pinterest to see if anything would spark my creativity and there it was. A Squash Book. A WHAT??? Never heard of them before. The more I looked at them, the more I wanted to create one. I have the wonderful Bo Bunny pocket Journaling Cards and thought all of the squares and triangles would be perfect to use in a Squash Book. I was right. And the size was perfect!! What better way to use a few of my favorite adhesives by 3L.There is an adhesive for just about every project.
 For the cover, I popped up the top layer using Dodz Permanent Adhesive Medium in black. The squares come in different sizes and they also come in white color.

This is a view of the squash book from the opening side. To tie my book together, I used some seam binding in a neutral color.

This is a view of the book opened up flat. For the base, I used the Family Record/Heritage paper. You can see I used some of the pocket squares on the non folded sections of the squash book. The parts that fold, I cut the pocket squares on the diagonal before adhering them to the book using EZ Runner permanent strips adhesive roller.I punched out some little flowers and adhered them to the pocket squares using EZ Dots repositional dots. They are small but very strong.

This is a view of the backside of the book. I love the Bo Bunny design the paper. The non folded sections can be used to adhere photos.

This is a view from the top of the squash being folded up.It folds up like a crazy accordion origami style.

This is just another angle to show how the book folds open.Either side of the photo show the front and back cover.

This is a view of the front opening.When opened, you get the view of the pocket squares.

This is a closeup of the cover. I have used Bobunny blooms and actually used the green flower, took apart the layers and created the green leaves. I adhered the flowers using the 3 D Foam squares in white.
