How to make

Step 1

Cut 10, A6 panels from Kraft cardstock and patterned papers, attach the patterned papers to the kraft to form all the pages.

Card cut out

Tip: Punch the first one and use this as a guide for all the rest.

Step 2

Punch a small hole into the top of each panel.

To make the re-enforcers, hole punch a piece of card stock then use a small circle punch to punch out around the hole creating the doughnut shaped re-enforcer. Fix one to each page.

Hole punching card

Use 3d foam pads on sticker to add dimension, de-stick the sticker using a little talcum powder or anti static pad.

Step 3

Layer up each photo with different coloured/textured cardstocks, offsetting them slightly for added interest.

Decorate each page using papers, card embellishments, flowers and even make use of the waste holes from the punching in step 4.
