I started by cutting cardstock and papers into 5" x 6" sizes, all are from July's main kit and add on kit: Elmwood Park and Capture the Flag. Then I used remnants of the papers to embellish. The main idea was to spell out L-U-C-A-S so I started with the lettering pages and then decorated behind each with photos etc.
The lettering are achieved by fussy the cutting the letters from this pp:
|Basic Grey - PB & J - Thermos|
Below photos are how I decorated each page behind the lettering pages....
Last step - simply punch a hole at the top left corner and use a ring or chain to hold the pages together. Finally here's how the album look like page by page.
Now I'd like to share a simple tutorial on how to make the canvas ribbon bloom. You will need; needle, thread, ribbon with some width, buttons and twine to decorate the centre and some glue dots to adhere the bloom to paper.
- Step 1: Gather the edge of the ribbon into a fan shape, thicker ribbons are easier to work with, this canvas fabric is perfect!
- Step 2: Thread a needle and thread through it section by section till you have enough to become a bloom.
- Step 3: Sew up at the joining section and knot it - this will be the behind.
- Step 4: Flip to the other side and you're almost done - add finishing touches to the centre with buttons or other embellishments.
Hope you like this album and bloom :) Thanks for dropping by and have a great week ahead!
