Valentine - Mini Album
Here is a mini album I made for Valentines Day. The hearts came from the Doodlebug Charms cartridge (page 85). I used the Scallop Heart on the very last page.
The words 'I Like You' and 'Wild About You' are from the Wild Card cartridge (pages 71).
Cereal boxes were used to make the album, which I cut with my deep cut blade. I used a paper hole punch to make holes in the side for the rings to hold the album together. I made 2 holes in the side for 2 rings but found later that 1 ring worked better - 1 ring makes page turning easier!
On the cover I pieced a few strips of paper together with my sewing machine. I was trying to be thrifty and use all my scraps. I used a Martha Stewart heart border punch on a few strips to add interest and texture. I made 2 albums and with only 3 sheets of patterned paper!
The other Valentine mini album is going to be giving away as a door prize for my Moms Club. Hope that they like it!
