.... New Addition to.... PAST-TIMES 4 YOU .... New Addition to ....
[with help from "rubyglen.com" ]
 You will soon be needing somewhere to put all those fanastic holiday snaps and you don't want them to get scruffy when all your friends view you holiday romances and disasters. So here is a simple Scrape Book to make:

1.      You will need a ring folder with plastic inlays, then some medium thickness paper, no  bigger than A4 so they fit in the plastic sleeves.

2.      Mist the  paper with a spray bottle filled with water very lightly and evenly on both sides. 

3.      Crumple the paper into a very tight ball. The tighter the paper is crumpled, the more “waves” you will have. You may have to re-crumple the page several times to get the desired effect. Reopen paper, smooth it out with your hands, and lay it flat to dry

4.    When the paper has dried thoroughly, apply a drop of white stamp pad refill ink onto a cottonwool ball and brush lightly across paper – just enough to get the top edges of the wrinkles in the paper.
The result should look like rippling water. 

5.      Once the ink has dried thoroughly, place the paper face down on an ironing board and place a cloth over it. Turn the iron to a very low setting (I used the silk / rayon setting) and iron the paper until it lays fairly flat. If you skip this step, you will have a hard time getting the glue or photo squares to hold your pictures to the crumpled paper.

6.      Use an interesting lettering style or a word processor to make a “Fun in the Sun” title block for the front page – be creative! As most of us who use a PC have most of the materials to hand it is only the ring folder you need or one of those that is lying dormant.  (mine are usually shoved under the bed)
