A self proclaimed scrapoholic, I have just too many crafting supplies; more than I need or know what to do with. So sometimes, when I actually sit down to make a project, I find that I have so many options, that I take too much time to finish anything. That's why I love being challenged! For this challenge, I had to use no other tool but the Orange Handled scissor! My paper supplies include 5 sheets of white cardstock, ribbons, adhesives and a bunch of photos.
I am going to be making a mini album today. And this is a pretty easy and quick project to do (excluding the drying time). To start with, I took 4 of my white cardstocks and folded them in half and added modge podge to glue it close. This way I created four 6 by 12 inch album pages. I added some ribbon on the bottom just before pressing the cardstock down to glue.
Now to adhere the pages to each other, in order to form an album/book, I added more modge podge between each pair of pages. I had to wait for the pages to dry at this stage, and to keep things flat I did put down a heavy book on my album and also used some paper clips near the spine of the book. I let it dry overnight. You could use regular white glue, but that is not quite photo safe. If you would like to use this method to just make a book and stick images or drawings, the white glue could work.
Now comes the fun part! Adhering the photos! I used a mix of black and white and colored photos here. This is an handmade album, and thus surface of the pages are slightly uneven, so I used my adhesive (I used a tape runner by Glue arts) generously while adhering the photos to the album. I have eight 6 by 6 inch pages to fill with photos. A vertical 4 by 6 photo will fit neatly on a page or you could use smaller wallet sized photos here.
Now to add drama and interest to the cover of my album, I used the fifth and last white cardstock sheet to make a few flowers and a photo frame. Using the scissors, I cut about 4 or five strips off the cardstock, each about half and inch wide. I also used a small bowl from my kitchen as a guide to draw a circle onto my cardstock with a pencil. This circle will be a guide to make the photo frame.
I covered the circle I drew with some cling wrap. I then moistened the strip of paper I just cut with some water and modge podge. This makes the cardstock pliable and soft to work with. I pleated this wet strip along the circle as seen below. You will need two or three strips to completely finish pleating around the circle. I let this dry, and since I used the cling wrap it will peel off very easily.
Now using my Orange handled scissors, I spiral cut into the circle I drew earlier on the cardstock. This is to make a flower.
I moistened this spirally cut circle and rolled into a flower. And let it dry on the cling wrap.
Once dry, I added a photo, the photo frame and flowers onto the album cover. I added bits of ribbon to the center of the flowers and adhered them using some foam dots.
To give the album a pretty touch, I tied it shut with a huge organza bow.
And there it is, a pretty mini album to treasure.
