I have uploaded the directions (and more samples) to my website Project Gallery. There is a PDF with the step by step process. This is made from my least favorite (ooops! am I allowed to say that?) Enchante papers, but it really does work in moss and brown. Of course I used up all the floral papers first and I really do like this combination (especially the binding paper… very elegant). The loops are one in the front cover and one in the back and the pencil holds it shut. I first tried ribbon, but it needs to be stiff, so cardstock had to do. I ended up being most successful using our stick glue very liberally to glue the Designer Series paper to the chipboard. It took a bit of time and pressure at first (two minutes at most) but it held the paper more securely in the long run.
