CKC-Texas - Maze Book in a Matchbox Project

It's been a frustrating year for us expo-goers, hasn't it? We (the vendor) haven't been able to connect with you (the crafter) to personally share our products, teach workshops and simply have fun learning and creating together!

Instead of visiting seventeen great locations this year, I've been in my office/studio creating unique online learning opportunities for virtual expos. After designing countless page and card projects, I decided to apply my efficient approach to create something extra special. Meet the maze book in a matchbox project!

Fair warning: this project might challenge you. If you haven't measured something in a while, today's the day! Dust off your skills and get ready to learn. A lot.

I shared this project in a LIVE presentation on the CKC-Arlington Facebook group, but I prefer to leave nothing to chance. Read on to access all of the materials available to help you be successful when making your books.

Tools and Supplies You May Want

I've spent more than 21 years finding the best, most efficient ways to use our favorite resource –– beautiful paper! I consider the following tools essential to successful paper crafting.

12" Paper Trimmer - This model is my absolute favorite. It's a light-weight, economical, self-sharpening work horse. I won't craft without it.

CS® Page Kits - I'm certain I'm biased about this, but our page kits are pretty impressive. They contain everything needed to create eight fully-embellished 12x12" pages OR they can be adapted and used in other crafty projects, like the one from today!

The papers are designed and printed in the USA, and the collections are assembled by hand in our Wisconsin warehouse. I invite you to subscribe to the original scrapbook club for just $21.95. We've been releasing kits monthly since 1999!

Folding Board - This nifty product is made in the USA and designed for high-end packaging for perfumes, cosmetics, and other premium products. I've discovered it's also perfect for making durable books, folios, matchbox sleeves, and more! We carry it in four styles: matte black, kraft, brushed stainless steel, and hammered copper.

CS® Grid Rulers - If you haven't already figured this out, I do quite a bit of measuring in my projects. A simple grid ruler is a powerful tool that can solve all sorts of crafty challenges, like adhering things "downhill". It helps to quickly find the center of an object, and assists in creating equal spacing between elements. And, we just released an adorable "mini" grid ruler! Check it out!

I'm humbled and grateful for all of the support shown to us by our loyal members and customers during these uncertain times. Our team of nine loyal employees loves what we do, and we thank you for the opportunity to serve you!
