It took a while, but I finally cut and got a book together. This was my first time cutting "chipboard" as well, so I don't think it turned out too bad. It can only get better from here. Cheers!
I made the emblem on the left in inkscape today after doing a Scrappy Dew tutorial :P. Turned out pretty good.
The ribbons are attached to a tag with a note I wrote to the eagle scout.
The red on the left is a quasi accordian file. I never feel like these books have enough room for pictures....so this makes room for a few more. Next time (before it's perfectly glued in place) I will at ribbons then the accordian can be tied closed.
