Hello friends! Today's project is a mini album using packaging materials.
Feel free to post any questions in the comments section OR join the discussion over at Do more with less's Facebook Page [I just started this page and need some friends...perhaps I should do a "secret" giveaway? Oops...did I say that out aloud?]
Step 1: This used to house brads. Open up packaging and cut out the portion you want to use.
Step 2: Gather the embellishments you want to use in each "compartment" and adhere with glossy accents. Set it aside to dry (I let mine dry overnight.)
Step 3: Cut acrylic pieces to desired size. Ink edges of Stazon.
Step 4: Glue bubble wrap to the acrylic pieces. These will form the "back" of each page...covers up all the glue marks and fits into the bath bubbles theme..*winks*
Step 5: Sand edges of photos. Adhere. Add border strip and sticker.
Step 6: Cut corrugated cardboard to size. Add photos, border strip and sticker.
Repeat for pages...I alternated between corrugated cardboard and acrylic.
Step 7: Embellish the cover of the mini album with ribbon, brads, bits of scrap paper, bubble wrap and stickers. Punch holes, bind the pages with ring, add ribbon and it's all done! :)
Another simple project using stuff you already have. What do you think?
Supplies: Packaging materials, acrylic, Stazon, glossy accents, 7 Gypsies stickers and Gauche Alchemy embellishments.
P/s: Don't forget about my guest Elizaveta's vintage-inspired challenge!
