This is a really fun and easy thing to do. Its a small metal book . I used 22 gauge bronze – its thin enough so you can stack the ” pages ” and hard enough as a metal that the pages do not bend when you stamp them.I cut them 1 inch by 1 1/2 inch but you can do it whatever size you prefer . Stamp anything on it using each page .Only do one side as it does go through a bit when you stamp . Now you need to either punch holes or stack drill so that the holes line up perfectly.I used my hole punch plier for that . Add patina . Polish and the put together like a book . Ad a split ring so your love can use it as a keyring .
