Christmas Mini Album


This is such an easy project to make. The outside panels are chipboard coasters covered with Ruby Red DSP from the Hostess Patterns pack. The inside panels are two 4" x 12" Ruby Red strips that were scored at 4" and 8" and folded accordian style. I used a paper hinge on the outside to hold the two 4" x 12" panels together. I glued the first fold to the inside of the chipboard coasters, added some Sage Shadow panels and decorated the front. I did not have any Sage Shadow ribbon so I used a little strip of paper. The ribbon is the retired Riding Hood Red taffeta (which I miss TERRIBLY!!) and it was simply attached under the front & back panels; it does not go around the back of the photo album. I did not decorate the inside but it could have a Christmas poem on one panel, stamped images, words or photos.

I still use a glue stick to attach paper to chipboard; I think it works best and it dries quickly. I may make a few of these to give as last minute gifts or simply to place around the room to decorate for Christmas.

LOVE it! Ruby Red & Sage Shadow are great together! This looks fun - think I'm in trouble. You're right - that glue stick is great. You've got a little wiggle room (always a good thing), plus it holds like nobody's business! NOT your children's glue stick!
