I made my first ever TP mini album for Marks Finest Papers Day 12 challenge. It was fun, but sort of fiddly. I was a bit of a cheapskate and tried to use some of my oldest papers 12 x 12 papers to cover the TP rolls. There are certainly VOS (very old supplies) so it felt good to get them used...but...had I known how fiddly this mini would be, I would have used nicer paper!
I have one little assembly tidbit to share in case you ever try to make one. Before I cut any paper, my very first step was to Sook Wang any edges inside the roll that looked loose or starting to peel.
That solved the problem of those edges fraying more with the motion of pushing the tags in and out of the finished book.
I think this mini will be a present for the grandkids. They have cameras and can take a few pictures of Christmas 2013 for their book. Little Mr P will love to pull the tags in and out!
The tags have fancy edges but I double matted the fancy part with a flat glittery card for extra strength. Perhaps you can see those edges a bit better in the next few photos.
Here are some shots of the mini pages.
Here are the tags that slide into the rolls. I left the back of each plain Glitter paper as this is where the kids will place their photos.
Hope you like the mini tour...off to work on a few more of the challenges. Hope I am not boring you too much...There is a faux stained glass stamped card coming up soon and also a 3D tag...that one should be fun!
No recipe tonight...basically 3 TP rolls, a bunch of snippets and more of that glitter paper I have been using on my last couple of posts. The embellishments are K and Co (of course...lol).
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Marks Finest Papers Twelve Days of Christmas Day 12 - TP mini album
2. A Little Bit Crafty - Sparkle and Shine
