Hello everyone, it is Linda here with a “One Page Wonder” Mini Album using the Simply Stories’ School Life Collection. There is no denying it has been a challenging year with everything going on globally. What better gift to give a teacher(s) than an album full of encouragement. A thank you for being so amazing with all of the extra efforts that go into online learning.
As a reminder, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is featuring our friends at Simple Stories until the end of September. To commemorate, we are giving away three adhesives and paper pack packages. Please read through Linda’s fabulous project and at the end, there will be giveaway details! YaY!
School Life Mini Album Base
Using a scoring board and crease tool, score across a 30cm x 30cm sheet of double-sided paper at 15cm. Turn the paper over, and scoring in the same direction, score at 5cm and 25cm. Next, turn the paper 90 degrees, and score at 7.5cm, 15cm, and 23cm. Finally, turn the paper so the scores at 5cm,15cm, and 25cm are vertical.
Starting at the centre of the lower edge, cut on the 15cm line up to the 7.5cm score line at the top of the paper NOTE: This is the only cut in the whole album.
With the side of the paper you want for the cover and pockets) face down, fold and crease along the 5cm scoreline; next fold and crease along the 25cm scoreline; these are the pockets and should be on the inside.
Fold the paper in half on the uncut part at the top of the cut line, with the main side out.
Using the E-Z Grand Permanent Strips Dispenser, tape the four open pocket sides shut.
Start from the bottom right side and Accordion fold and when you get to the end, turn the paper over and repeat the folding process.
Optional: using the Extreme Double-Sided tape 1/4in on one side of the Album middle to hold the secure the two sides together.
Use a small hole punch and create two holes through all the album pages, 2.5cm from both the top and lower edges of the album. Add Binder rings.
The basic album is complete.
Embellish the Tags
Cut the tags from the patterned sheet of patterned paper. Adhere to a tag using E-ZDots Permanent Refill Dispenser 15m. Add a strip of Washi Tape below the paper tag. Place a tag in each pocket on the album.
Decorate the Cover
Adhere the card stock embellishments to the front cover using E-Z Grand Permanent Strips Dispenser 150 feet
Designers Tip: Add Extreme Double-Sided tape 1/4in to the back of the Chipboard Stickers to make them more secure if the album is going to be posted or handled a lot.
Decorate the Album covers, pockets and tags using the Chipboard Stickers, paper embellishments and Washi Tape.
Accessorize the Pockets
Use a strip of Extreme Double-Sided tape 1/4in place it to the inside edge of the front cover, remove the backing and adhere the bauble braid. Repeat this on the inside of the back cover.
