Mini Scrapbook/Card

Here's a really simple pattern that you can use to make a mini scrapbook or card, click here to download.

As you can see, it's a really tiny scrapbook...around the size of a Stickles bottle. It got to be that tiny mainly because I wanted to be able to use a Marvy scalloped oval punch (pink) to make the pages of the scrapbook/card. I tried to get a few of the steps in one picture (below):

First, punch out 3 pieces of cardstock with the Marvy scalloped oval punch, and fold them all in half widthwise. Then glue the 3 folded ovals back-to-back to make the "pages" of the scrapbook/card. Cut out the pattern along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Make a tiny cut in the middle of the bottom fold line (just wide enough to slip a 4" piece of ribbon through...and tape down one end of the ribbon. Next, punch out 2 pieces of cardstock using a small (yellow) Marvy scalloped oval punch...take one of these pieces and tape down another (4") piece of ribbon. Decorate the other punched piece with a stamp (this stamp is #5001 - Dog in Flowers).

Glue the decorated oval on the top flap of the scrapbook/card...then glue the second piece to the back of the first piece (so that the ribbon is sandwiched between the 2 ovals). Glue down the "pages" into the scrapbook card as shown above. Here's a sample of a card with sentiments stamped on the different pages:

Here's a sample of it as a scrapbook:

Hope you give it a try!!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
