|Last Saturday I held a fun class creating these mini albums. Here is a whistle-stop pictorial tour of the process:|
|A toilet roll, flattened by running through the Big Shot|
and trimmed to 4"long.
|The card insert cut from thick whisper white card stock|
and shaped with the tag punch.
with your choice of paper, ensuring the strip of paper overhangs
on each end.
|Snip the paper along the length, up to the edge of the pocket.|
|Put glue on the paper and press down along the edge to neaten.|
|Use a bone folder or similar tool to ensure|
the paper has adhered well. Repeat on other side of the pocket.
|Cut strips of paper 1" wide and scored at|
1/2" then folded in half.
|Use these strips to neaten the top and bottom edge of the pocket.|
|Repeat to create 4 pockets.|
|Cut 2 covers from chipboard and cover with paper and or card,|
Punch holes, lining up both covers and all the pockets. Add rings.
|Ready to decorate with ribbon and trims and wooded hearts|
|Big alphabet dies, confetti punches and stamps|
|Photographs, die cuts and bakers twine.|
|Little envelopes and heat embossed lips for kisses|
|Craft ink, ribbon and 3D die cuts|
|Project Life paper clip dies|
|More envelops, stamps and some fussy cutting|
|Embossing folders, lace doilies and a button|
I loved this project and you could change the theme to suit a variety of different occasions.
