How to make

Step 1

Cut 10, A6 panels from Kraft cardstock and patterned papers, attach the patterned papers to the kraft to form all the pages.

Card cut out

Tip: Punch the first one and use this as a guide for all the rest.

Step 2

Punch a small hole into the top of each panel.

To make the re-enforcers, hole punch a piece of card stock then use a small circle punch to punch out around the hole creating the doughnut shaped re-enforcer. Fix one to each page.

Hole punching card

Use 3d foam pads on sticker to add dimension, de-stick the sticker using a little talcum powder or anti static pad.

Step 3

Layer up each photo with different coloured/textured cardstocks, offsetting them slightly for added interest.

Decorate each page using papers, card embellishments, flowers and even make use of the waste holes from the punching in step 4.

Card album construction

Step 4

Create a front page with a fish tail cut in the bottom allowing the page below to show underneath. Embellish using more stickers etc.

Add a small embellished tag shape on top, attach all the pages together using a length of ribbon.
