I never realized how much cardboard our lives are surrounded by. I have been trying to find new uses besides recycling for all this material.
This was a flat of canned soup.
I decided what size I wanted my little album to be and used Chevy Man's pocket knife and sliced it up.
A few days ago I made paper. Nothing fancy, just basic paper. I'll go into greater detail later on that.
I then matched up the paper and design I liked and err... "embroidered" the paper to the cardboard. lol.
A few of the pages have pull tags.
It's Finished! Now decorate how you choose.
I can't give it away with out an envelope can I? I traced my interpretation of an envelop onto painting paper. (I have a HUGE roll)
Cut it out.
Then I put the mini cardboard album into the envelope to figure out how big to leave the flaps. Then I embroidered (using this term lightly haha) the bottom of the envelope closed.
This is the front of the envelope. Aww...
The envelope idea came from Family Chic
The Mini Cardboard album came from Kevin and Amanda
What are you making your loved ones?
