Oh Happy Scrap It Friday!
It’s Friday once again and I am so ready for the weekend! Anyone else ready?! Alright so today I have a Mini Album I wanted to share with you. I put this particular one together for one of our scrapbook buddies. That’s all I can tell you about her as I know she does ready my blog. Let’s get started…
- Red Cardstock
- White Cardstock
- Brown Cardstock
- Black Cardstock
- Paper trimmer
- Cricut Scorer Tool
- Small Envelopes
The first thing I did was cut each piece of my Red, White, and Brown Cardstock in half where they became 6 by 12 pieces. This then gave me enough to be able to make the pieces longer. Continue reading you will find out what I am talking about.
Secondly, I used my paper trimmer to score each piece of cardstock. I used this instead of my scorer I have because it’s packed somewhere so I compromised. First I took the white piece out of from under the cutting piece allowing space under the paper. Then I placed the cardstock at the 5.5 inches mark as well as at the 6 inch mark to make my scoring marks allowing the cardstock to fold.
I then started on the inside part of the mini album. Here I used about five small envelopes along with five pieces of black cardstock that were already the perfect size to fit inside the envelopes. First I folded the flap of the envelope to the back of each envelope and adhered each one together where the flaps were attached to the one behind it for each one. Then I inserted a piece of black cardstock into each envelope.
Finally it was time to add the stickers. I added some pet themed stickers where first I had some paws to add as a border on the edge of the album. Then I added a single sticker to the top of each black cardstock where they each stuck leaving just a little over the edge to use a a tab for putting it out of the envelope. While positioning them I made sure they were each seen when laying down.
Once finished placing the stickers I put each piece of cardstock back in it’s envelope and added the piece of ribbon as well as the final sticker to the outside of the album. To adhere the ribbon I positioned it into place and placed the sticker on top of it to keep it in place.
