This layout is part of a [email protected]! Binder I'm making to document a trip my husband and I took to Hawaii.

We took the trip because we were invited to our friend John's wedding. At the time, John was serving in the US military and was stationed on the island of Oahu. He and his wife-to-be rented a beach house right on the water as the wedding location. That was the most fun wedding I have ever attended!

I worked surface crochet slip stitch around the edges of this layout using size 10 crochet thread that I hand dyed.

I have a free tutorial on my website for how to do surface crochet slip stitch on a knitted or crocheted fabric:

To do the stitch on paper, you have to take an extra step: punching evenly-spaced holes in the paper so you have a spot to work your stitches.

There are different ways you could approach this. I did it by using the We R Memory Keepers Book Binding Tool Set to punch my holes. It would also be possible to accomplish the same task by attaching graph paper to the back of your page and then using the smallest circle-shaped Fiskars hand punch to punch your holes. You then use the grids on the graph paper as guides to help you figure out where to punch the holes.

More details are posted at my website:

Thanks so much for taking a peek at my project! I appreciate your interest.
