Step 1:
Using Extreme Tac Adhesive adhere a 5.75" x 5.75" piece of patterned paper to middle of each scallop chipboard then adhere a 5" x 5" piece of patterned paper to the middle of that. Make sure the holes of the album are going up and down (not on the side).

Step 2:
Punch holes in the opposite end of each chipboard page. Leave the top of the first chipboard and the bottom of the last without holes.

Step 3:
Cut a 1.5" x 6" piece out of the Acrylic sheet and cut a triangle out of one side. Add a title to the top.

Step 4:

Cut little pieces of the U-Cut it foam and add to the back of the letters so you can't see the foam from the front. Adhere the title to the top of the first piece of chipboard.

Step 5:
Using Extreme Tac Adhesive squares adhere some ribbon to the back of the top piece of chipboard. Add some extreme tac to the back of a 2 scraps of patterned paper and adhere over the ribbon to add a permanent bond!

Step 6:
Tie each piece of chipboard together with ribbon.

Step 7:
Write out a list of fun things to do during the summer. Leave room to add things as summer unfolds!

Display somewhere where you'll see it everyday and be inspired to do something fun everyday!
At the end of summer use this to make a mini album to celebrate everything you did during the summer!
