On Tuesday evenings every other wee I teach a Techniques class at my house and every year we have a Christmas Party and bring a gift to share. $10. limit and wrap it up pretty. Well at the last minute I decided to make a Mini Album to give. That was Sunday after I got home from shopping. I am quite pleased with what I turned out.
I used different chipboard pieces from various mini albums I have collected from dollar bins here and there and this giant acrylic Snowflake for the cover and then I cut a couple of acrylic pieces for the inside. I used mostly papers from Bo Bunny and tags and overlay pieces from K & Co.
So this is what the book looks like all together.
Here is a view of the cover. I used Alcohol Inks to color outer edges of the snowflake and a beautiful overlay for the Title.
Page One. These Papers are Beautiful. the frame is cut with a Cuttlebug Folder.
I used my new Tim Holtz Alterations Die for the Slide Strip and put a plain white paper behind so you can put little photos in there.
Another piece of Acrylic that I cut and then used Alcohol inks around the edges. I left openings in all the frames that I used so that whoever got this could put photos in.
This is the Box that I put the gift in, All decorated with various pieces from my stash and a cardinal cut from a gift bag from the Dollar Store.
Inside the box were a bunch of little goodies so that the recipient could add to the decorations on the pages.
