Maze Book 2

After making a Maze Book last week for one of the Just Bex challenges, I decided to make another for a very special friend who celebrates her birthday on Saturday. I really enjoy putting the books together, they are so simple but very effective. I'm into brown at the moment so the card base on this one is brown Bazzil too!

Pages 1 & 2

Pages 3 & 4

Pages 5 & 6 Pages 7 & 8

Back cover and tags

I would love to know how other people stop their pages from 'flopping' out when the book is open. I have tried gluing or taping some of the pages together but this just seems to make the book incredibly tight when open!
I have used various papers from old SA Kits, spotty Prima Flowers from Craft Obsessions, Quickutz dies, ribbons from my lovely stash from RIbbon Oasis and my lovely new Cuttlebug embossing folders.
Thanks to my gorgeous kitty cats, housework beckons. One of them has just knocked a plant over in the conservatory so I have to go and clean up the soil. I wish I could get them to use a dustpan and brush, it would make my life easier. LOL

Love this, Jackie - good to see you've caught the maze book bug!

About the flopping out of the pages - mine don't seem to do this and I'm wondering if it's because where the "turns" are (you know, when you fold it into a book instead of a square of card) I put a narrow strip of DST along 2 of the edges to make a concealed pocket? hope that makes sense!
