Camping Compas Book with lots of added inserts.

Once again I was delighted and beyond excitement to take my nephew's children camping. We have done this each summer. I look forward to this weekend and enjoying the outdoors with them.. Here is a book that I made for them. I had won this book at a crop that I went to in the spring. I thought it was fitting for a camp book. Almost every page is an interactive page with waterfall inserts, accordion folded book, or even a double slider.

This is an accordion insert. there are pictures on both sides of the pages, too.

This is a waterfall insert that I made using circles. It had no directions and made it up as I went. LOL I like how it turned out. I love do something new.

This is a fold open book with lots of tag inserts for many many pictures.

To make the waterfall insert, cut a strip 9" by 3. Score that at 2, 2 3/4, 3 1/2, and 4 1/4. Cut pieces of paper 4 1/2 by 2 3/4, 4 1/2 by 3 1/2, 4 1/2 by 4 1/4, and 4 1/2 by 5. You can adjust the size of these pieces to fit your pictures. Just make sure that they increase by 3/4 inches and the widths are the same. Attach the smallest piece and the bottom and work you way up to the biggest pieces. The adhesive needs to be put just below the score line. Then attach it to a band.

This is a double slider made using a grocery bag.

I can't wait until next summer to plan another camping trip with these awesome kids!!!

Wowsers! You were right saying that there are a lot of pictures. It's deceiving - but you've done an INCREDIBLE job getting all the photos in, using such creative and fun methods! What a treasure!!
