i had lost my instructions so had to do it from memory ,its ok i suppose but i prefer the fit of the way i have always done it , the pages sit nicely inside one another , mine have too much of a gap IYKWIM.
I JUST USED 12 INCH / 11 INCH AND 10 INCH PAPers and cubed it up

Thats a super box Kim. It would also qualify for your word
challenge.
The little charms are gorgeous and add that special touch.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing
