Holiday Scrapbooking - Day 3 - Mini Book - Swatchbook

Some of the page protectors lend themselves to inserting little mini books versus single photos so that you can get more happy holiday faces into your scrapbook! 
 
Directions:
  • Layer the Pocket card shown with the 2 pieces of Crumb Cake (cut at 4 x 6). 
  • Punch a hole in the upper corner using the paper piercing tool. 
  • Insert a brad base. 
  • Insert a Crumb Cake Candy Dot. 
  • Create a banner using your scissors or the hexagon punch out of a strip of diagonal stripes left over from cutting up your DSP. 
  • Attach to the book using dimensionals. 
  • Insert a strip of DSP to the last page after you add your photo to cover the brad legs, if desired
 

Tips:
  • Make sure your pictures are put in the swatchbook the right way or they will be upside-down when someone opens the book.
  • Don't cover the brad legs with a dimensional - it will make it hard for the book to turn and open.
  • If you had 4 x 6 photos that you didn't want to cut down, you could just add them directly to the swatchbook so that they swivel instead of using the Crumb Cake cardstock.
Have a craftastic day,
Stacy
