A Tutorial on Wednesday!!

Do you have pictures that you want to put together in a mini album, but you do not have the time to create a 1o page mini? Do you want a little something more than a regular layout? Well here is the perfect project for you!!

by Michele Beck

Step 1: Choose 2 papers and cut one in the middle.

Step 2: Put your papers together.

Step 3: Turn the papers over and add tape.

Step 4: Using another coordinating paper, cut two strips. Then punch one side with a border punch.

Step 5: Adhere strips to hold your papers together and bend it.

Step 6: Glue two pieces of ribbon to your layout so you can make a bow to hold the sides together.

Step 7: Embellish just as you would a layout!! I added tags, stickers and flowers.

Step 8: Now add paper and embellishments just as if you were creating a double page layout. Take a look at the finished product!

Pretty simple don't ya think? Less time than a mini album, but it is still something different than just a layout! I also think this could be a great gift too!

Supplies Used: Ad Lib Hoopla, Ad Lib Improv, Ad Lib This n That, Ad Lib Cut Outs, Ad Lib Combo Stickers, Ad Lib 12x12 Chipboard, Ad Lib Life is Good Stickers, Ad Lib Jewels, Buttons, Dimensional Stickers, Wraps, and Brads, Bo Bunny Double Dot Ribbon, and Bo Bunny Flowers.

Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!!
