Trying Something New – Paper Crafts!

I recently started making paper crafts thanks to my MOPS buddy Angie. Angie is incredibly talented in decorating and crafting. She is also a Stampin’ Up demonstrator/sales rep. I’ve been a scrapbooker for years, but Angie introduced me to a whole new world of paper crafting. I’ve recently started making greeting cards, mini photo albums, and a few other paper crafts.

Here are two of the mini albums I made designed by Angie.
{Please excuse the photos. I took these at night so they are kinda dark.}

Materials needed: embossed heavy cardstock, coordinating designer scrapbook paper, envelopes, ribbon, brads, silk flowers, buttons, stamps, ink pads, scalloped or floral punches, a hole punch and scrapbook adhesive.

The first is a matchbook album. This is the front cover which closes just like a matchbook and is held together with a ribbon at the top. 

Inside the book are several pages, each a different style, to hold a single photo. 
The second is an accordion-style album. This album opens like a book and is secured shut with a ribbon.
Inside envelopes are attached to create a vertical accordion which houses unique pages for single photos.
A huge thanks to Angie for showing me how to craft with paper! I know I don’t have the step-by-step tutorial today, but don’t worry, I’ll be making more of these soon and sharing with you exactly how to do it! 

This week I’m linking up to these fabulous parties:

  1. Awesome mini books! I used to scrapbook, but now I feel like I have no time to do that with homeschooling. 🙁 Thanks for sharing!
