I have been doing some cute pages shaped like a baby's bounty blanket and embellishing them, I will fill them up with baby tags and later put into a baby mini album. I also made a very simple mini album out of K and company paper and I am still in the process of filling it with tags and embellishments.
I also have a lot of clip art and images that I print out or fussy cut from some of my older paper pack called Hot off the Press. I wanted to preserve them for when I need to use them. So, what I did was fussy cut a lot of the images and with removable adhesive I paste them down on two 8X10 paper and putting two sides together with images facing outward, I then pass them through the sticker machine with two sided lamination. When they come out you just cut around the paper very close to the edge and pull apart the two sides. After that just cut all the images and you will have them all laminated and protected from wet hands .
Okay, now for the box, I had notice that my desk was slowly piling up with pop dots and other adhesives, but not wanting to get up and go to my nearest crafting store for yet another small plastic bin and not wanting to store the new pop dots I purchased into my adhesive drawer. I decided to alter a small cardboard box I had and store my pop dots there at an arms reach. I am not going into a long detail explanation, I will let the pictures speak for them selves. What I did was cover the box in and out with some K and Company paper called Madeline, and I fussy cut some butterflies from the flora and fauna borders and paste them on the box top. The man and woman silhouettes are from the Victorian Romance cricut cartridge, I also used some music paper from the colorbok paper pad and I cut the image on the fold down tab from Graphic45 Le Romantique paper and I put small round velcro as the closure underneath the fold down tab. I used stickles on the woman's headband and on her waist ribbon and bow and on the mans shirt. It was pretty easy and simple and I enjoyed myself. Now I have to run off and make some more Birthday cards and I will post them later in the week. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and reading this post, have a blessed Sunday!
|This is the cardboard box I altered.|
|Here I am matting one of the pages from the simple mini.. Please click the Pics to enlarge.|
|Here is the simple mini album and the box covered in paper.|
|Here is another of the pages matted. They also have pockets to put tags inside.|
|Now that's what I call filled to the brim. They fit nice inside when the box is closed.|
|Here you can see the image on the fold down tab a little better. I did the star shaped crochet underneath the box about 15 years ago and it still looks good.|
|You can see the top of the box much better here.|
|These are the baby blanket pages I did that will go in a baby mini album.|
|The two papers with the pasted images go into the xyron .|
|The two papers are laminated cut and pulled apart.|
