Classic Christmas Mini

Classic Christmas Mini

Hey Friends!  It’s Vicki here with a little holiday project fun using the oh so cute, Classic Christmas line!  One of my favourite things to make from paper is a minibook.  I love them in album form, tag form, from scratch…I just love minibooks!  For this one I decided to make a layered flip book.  Simple Stories paper is a great weight and when layered makes for sturdy pages!!  Take a look…

I mounted the flip book on a piece of cardstock and added it to they Tim Holtz “Oh Deer” clipboard.  I like that I can make a new one every year and just switch it out.

I cut six 4 1/2” x 12” pieces of Classic Christmas paper and folded the sheets in half.  I glued all of the pieces together to form a layered flap book.

To finish the top of the book off, I trimmed a 4 1/2” x 3 1/2” piece, created a border punched edge and added it to the top of the book.  I wrapped a foiled doily over the top and added baker’s twine.  The cover is layered Classic Christmas Chipboard and Bits & Pieces with some stamped greenery and diecut letters.

Page one- I added a pocket to the bottom of the page and layered Fundamental Stickers.

Page two- Here I added mats and Bits & Pieces.

Page three- layered flap- I added a 4” x 11” flap that is secured on the bottom of the page.

I layered Bits & Pieces and Fundamental Stickers on these pages.

Page four- Double flap- Trim a 3 1/2” x 12” piece of paper and score a 3 3/4” flap at the top and a 2 1/2” flap at the bottom.

Add a 2” cardstock circle with a the Merry Christmas Bit and Piece to create a tab.

This double flap is a fun, interactive way to add holiday memories.

Page five- Layered flap- This time I added the flap to the top of the page!

Add more Fundamental Stickers and Bit & Pieces.

Page 6- Accordion fold out- Trim a 4 1/2” x 12” piece and score 3” lines.  Fold the 3” pages “accordion style, add baker’s twine and add to the page.

This is a fun and rather quick project to make.

It could make a fun gift or just a little something for you!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Holiday full of laughter, food and fun!

Merry Christmas!!!
