rom Crappy to Scrappy Scrapbook... It's a good thing!
I decided last month I wanted to make a scrapbook for my son's first birthday party. Well would have been a better idea to start this 6 months ago, cause I did not think I would love it so much!
Over the years I have wanted to scrapbook, but it was not this much fun. Maybe the idea of documenting a life made the difference. Anyways, so as an attempt to get rid of my stuff I already had, and not buy too much. I was going to use this as my book.
First, its not very boyish. Second, I worked really hard picking papers that did not scream, girl! So. I wanted to make the front a little more boyish. So here is what I did:
I embroidered/embellished my fabric ( I used blue fleece that I had, for out the outside and felt for the inside.)
Then using Krylon Spray Adhesive, I sprayed my fronts and back and then smoothed out my fabric.
Then Hot glued the edges, leaving the corners til last.
Then folded the corners neatly and glued.
Then I cut 12 x 12 piece of felt for each side. and glued them in.
Worked my ribbon through with a needle, and snipped a very little off with scissors...
