Step 4 After the cut, fold in half the other way across the 8” side (the cut will be along the fold – Step 4a photo). Holding the edges, you will push them together towards each other so the middle part opens out (Step 4b photo). Continue to push into the center and the pages of the book will form (Step 4c photo). Crease well along the spine.

Step 5 Open the book and stamp on each 3” x 4” page (Step 5 photo) with images from Beary Best Friends and Beary Best Times stamp sets with a Basic Black Classic Stampin’ Pad. Use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to help position the stamped images. For the images with the “skateboard” and “baseball cap”, you will need to use the masking technique which is described in Step 6.

Step 6 Stamp the “boy bear” image from the Beary Best Friends stamp set on a sticky note and on one of the 3” x 4” pages of the book with a Basic Black Classic Stampin’ Pad. Cut out the lower legs and shoes from the stamped image on the sticky note with Paper Snips. This will be the mask. Place the mask over the stamped “boy bear” image on the page (Step 6c photo). Next, stamp the “skateboard” image from the Beary Best Times stamp set using a Basic Black Classic Stampin’ Pad (Step 6d photo). Remove the mask.
