Hello again. Today is Day 3 of the "Be My Valentine" blog hop over at Creative Scrapbooking Divas. If this is your first day here and your first stop, then please start 'hoppin' at Sandy's blog. This blog hop is special because it's the first time CSD has included its MEMBERS to be part of the blog hop list. I've enjoyed visiting each blog and seeing how creative and talented our members are. When you're done here, the next stop is: KATIE at Katie's Nesting Spot.
If you want to see my project from Day 1, go to HERE. For Day 2's project, hop on over HERE and see that day's special project. If you like what you see, please leave a comment.
I created a matchbook mini album. It's easy to do, so I hope you'll make one for yourself or for a loved one. Please upload your project to my
To make the basic matchbook album you will need:
--1 strip of 12" x 4 1/2" strip cardstock for the cover (double sided paper works well for this project)
--4 to 8 pieces of 4 1/2" x 5" for the inside pages
--patterned paper to coordinate with cardstock
--Stapler and staples
--embellishments--ribbon, flowers, lace, stickers, etc
The final project will have up to 8 pages and will be about 5 1/4" x 4"
1. Trim a strip of cardstock 4 1/2" x 12" long. This is the outer cover so use heavy cardstock to ensure firmness.
