Hey everyone I have a WIP Work - In - Progress to share with you all today. I have been working on this mini for a few weeks.....quite a few weeks now!!! Leanne sent me the gorgeous new Graphic 45 - Botanical Tea and By the Sea paper pads and I have been distracted by them ever since. Anyway, I thought I had better share some of this with you all before I forget the details and how I made this mini in a draw, or a sleeve, ! So I will now do my best to show you how to make it...I am not that great with giving tutorials or giving directions just ask hubby ;)
To create the draw, I used one piece of A4 white cardstock. with the cardstock in the portrait position I scored at ¾" and again 1¾" . I then rotated my paper to the landscape position and scored at 1"; 5½"; 6½" and then at 11"
I cut away some of the cardstock on the right handside and removed some of the corners to create the little "flaps"
Then, using some wet glue I applied it to the 1 inch flap
and also these little tabs....
I then very carefully folded my sleeve or box into place. I used my bone folder to press all surfaces together!!
Once I had the outer sleeve all completed, I set to work on the insides. From another piece of A4 cardstock I cut a 4½" x 10" strip. I used my Silhouette Cameo to add the fancy edge to one end.
I scored this at 6½" and again at 7½". This will create a flap that goes over the outside of the box or sleeve.
I also did this to four strips measuring 4⅜" x 12" and again I gave them a fancy edge on the Silhouette Cameo
So that is my first instalment of my "work in progress". The papers I have chosen to cover this album with is the lovely Pink Paislee Collection - "Cottage Farms"
I still have a lot of work to do and will be sharing more of this mini with you all soon.
Well I hope you have enjoyed my Mad About Scrappin share for this week...
Thanks for stopping by.....
.....till next time
