Hello. Here I am…. It’s still Monday! For those of you who are on my e-mail list, I promised you a post today about this fun match book scrapbook album that I made for some Easter photos.
Well, it’s still Monday, so while I didn’t have it up first thing this morning, I still held up my end of the bargain!
This is a fun project to do for National Scrapbooking Day on May 5. How’s that for coincidence… National Scrapbooking Day falls on my birthday and on Cinco De Mayo this year — too bad I’ll be working this year. I’m sure I’ll have time to go out with the girls after our concert… Maybe I’ll be able to even squeeze in some scrapbooking in the morning and make it fully complete birthday celebration!
Anyway, back to the topic! This is a great project to do in one sitting. I’m thinking of maybe doing it as a class… anyone interested? It’s pretty simple with just three pieces of cardstock stitched together. Here are some more photos:
Here’s a view with the top open. It has 10 pages inside to decorate and showcase photos. You simply take a sheet of cardstock that is 11″ by 4.25 and score at 4 3/4″ and 10″. Then you need two pieces that measure 8.5″ by 4″ both of those are scored at 4.25.
You fold on all the scores and thread the two smaller pieces inside the longer (11″ by 4.25) piece. (Although as a little tip it is better to wait to tie in the pages until you have them all decorated).
I stapled the bottom “matchbook” portion with a regular stapler and then just covered the staples with some ribbon. Easy Peasy.
