They do say that behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.....and last night i proved this correct yet again!
I had this great idea to do a basque themed album. The idea was to make an album that you could you could put your more "private" memories in for a partner. The basque could be made as classy or downright tarty as needed.......so i went to work on it with the enthusiasm of a very enthusiastic thing thats reeeeeeally enthusiastic about something.
This was just a prototype so ignore the papers, i was just playing, and yes you won't have to look very far to see it's unfinished. I'll explain why!
My plan was to have the basque as the front cover and to undo the book to "reveal it's secrets", you had to untie the lace up ribbon. Yes it might look fiddly but thats womens lingerie for you! Think yourself lucky i didn't use a bra hook for a fastener.....i'd have a beard by the time i got it open!
So out came my new pink Bind-It-All which may i say is fantastic. I punched all the way up the basque fastener and the ribbon laced up beautifully. Then i punched both sides of the album for the wire hinges.
I was so excited about my creation in progress, i phoned Maddy and showed her a piccy. She looked at it for a few seconds and said, "It's lovely, ......but once you have opened the basque and opened the front, how do you get to all the pages if they are both wired up at each side?!"
Ah......i see a flaw in my plan. :) I know i said it was to contain personal moments that were private, but i didn't want to make it so inpenetrable that no-one could see it!
I could possibly rescue it if all the pages inside are split down the middle, similar to the front. Otherwise i think we can file this one under yet another mishap in the making!!! :)
