I AM Gifting Mini Album
Hi everyone! Shellye here to share an easy-to-make gifting mini album using the "I Am" Collection.
To begin I started with three of the components from the Interactive Elements: the larger 4X6 flip element, the matchbook element and the tri-fold element:
I adhered the two smaller elements to the inside pages of the 4X6 element with a high-tack adhesive.
The front was decorated with chibpoard stickers and a ribbon bow.
When the album is first opened, the original pages from the 4X6 element is given. I added a strand of washi tape, a chipboard butterfly, etc. The opposite page was left blank.
When the page is turned, you will find the tri-fold element has been added to the right-hand page.
Here is a close-up of the front of the tri-fold.
To the inside of the tri-fold, a 3X4 journal card was attached. The other pages were left plain so that small photos or journaling can be added.
As you go further into the 4X6 flip element, the pages get larger. The left-hand side of the page was lightly embellished and the right-hand side is where the matchbook-style element was added.
Just the front of the matchbook element was embellished; the inside pages were left as-is.
I wanted the back of the album to be a bit more sturdy, so a piece of medium-weight chipboard was cut slightly smaller than the 4X6 size. After adhering the chipboard to the back page, a covering was made by adding one of the 4X6 journal cards.
Now I have the perfect little girlie-girl gift on hand...with a teenaged daughter, we're always needing a last-minute gift for a friend :)
Thank you for joining us today!
