Hello and welcome. I’m Steffi and I will show you my next project. For this I worked for the first time with the great new tool “The Works”.
How cool is that!? So many things you can do with it. For my Travel Journal I tried two of the twelve features. It’s totally easy and very fast!
In a travel journal, small pockets are always very practical. You can store tickets, notes, photos, cards, etc. in them. I really like that.
This time I wanted to put several pockets for different things on one side. Small envelopes are best suited for this.
And with the “The Works” tool it’s very easy.
First I selected 5 different papers and cut them to the corrrect size according to the measuring guide that comes with the tool.
My page in the travel journal is 4 inch wide, so I made 3 x 3 1/2 inch envelopes.
Then I followed the instructions in the enclosed booklet to score the envelopes.
After that I punched small notches on the scored lines.
Once all 5 envelopes were finished, I glued them together. It is best to always try to keep an even distance. But I didn’t use an exact measure for this.
Finally, decorate the envelopes with words (photos, tickets, journaling,…). The pockets are ready and can be filled with all kinds of things.
Another feature of the tool I tried was for making tags. First I wanted to create tags in different colors and sizes and then tie them together at the top.
But I used a map of the city Santiago de Chile. Often you bring a small map from your travels. One would like to incorporate this into the album. But only how?
First I cut and folded the map. So that I have 3 sections in the same size.
Now fold the card and punch a hole first. For this there is a punch on the side of the device.
Then the folded card is put on the board and the corners are cut off. And the fold out map is ready.
Finally I attached a ribbon some small tags to the map. Just glue the map into the album and the fold out card is already integrated into the album.
I hope you enjoyed my contribution. With the “The Works” tool you can create a lot of great things.
I will sit at my desk again and try out more of them. Have a lot of fun with “The Works – All In One Tool”.
