Hi everyone! I hope you are stopping by for the Color Me Daisy Blog Hop!! I decided to make a mini transparency album for my project. Super easy way to use up your scraps and make a great mini album that would be a perfect stocking stuffer. Here's what you need...
1. transparencies (got mine at office depot)
3. Stazon ink
4. patterned paper or cardstock of your choice (I'm using the Feelin' Fall November CMD kit for my paper)
5. matching embellies
6. ribbon or twine
First step, cut your transparencies into 4x6 size. You can have as many pages as you want for your album, I used 4 for mine. I have my pages in the tall orientation. Stamp along the edges of your pages with Stazon ink. Any stamps, any color ink. Stamping can be a bit slippery, so be careful when lifting up your stamp. If it smears, you can wipe it off immediately and then stamp again. Here are 3 of my pages.
Add your photos. I used wallet sized photos, matted them and attached with tombo adhesive. Then turn the page over and add another piece of patterned paper or cardstock in the same spot. Don't cover up the stamping on the edges!
Cut a piece of paper as your cover. Make it tall enough to cover the whole book, but don't cover up all the transparencies and stamped edges. Fold your paper, add the pages, then punch holes. I used my cropodile. Tie together with ribbon or twine.
Embellish the front cover as you wish! I also added some buttons to the inside pages. You end up with a mini album that would be a great stocking stuffer, or grandparent brag book. The perfect size for grandma's purse!!
There you have it! A simple way to use transparencies to make a unique mini album. And really, anything goes. You can make the pages inside any size you want and add as many pages as you like. Go check out the Color Me Daisy site and see who else is participating in the blog hop. Then hop on over to see their projects! I can't wait to hop there myself!!
