The album is constructed using medium weight chipboard as the base for each page. I cut the rop papers for each page 7.5" tall by 6" wide. Then I cut the papers to cover the pages just about a half to 3/4 of an inch bigger to give me room to "wrap" the papers around the edges.
Once I had wrapped those around, I cut the papers to cover the back of each page just 1/4" smaller in each direction to glue on the back. Be sure to check out my video for closeups of each page.
Borrowed the idea after watching a Tim Holtz video where he mentioned this idea. Couldn't wait to give it a try, and I love it.
Once I was inspired by all the dies I had forgotten I owned, I played a little bit with cutting the edges of my pockets and a few decorative pieces to add to this little mini. Some of the newest dies I have are the Heartfelt Creations Ornaet Borders and Regal Borders and Pockets sets. So pretty! Just love the intricate styles and versatility of them!
Well, I hope this inspires you to take a new look at all of your olders supplies and have fun crafting!
