Vintage Valentine Paper Bag Album Part 3


Hello Friends, Today I am sharing pages 5 and 6 of my Vintage Valentine paper bag album.
First start by printing and cutting this sweet Valentine. I print my images on heavy cardstock that can be found in the printing section at Wal Mart.




Cut a sheet of patterned paper 5 1/2 x 6.




Cut a sheet of cardstock 4 x 5. I then cut photo corners using my Martha Stewart corner punch and cut 4 corners and glued the photo mat to my page.



I then added the little Angel to my page by setting her in the photo corner.



I then took a 1 x 5 strip of patterned paper and cut the ends to create a little banner. I then added "Valentine" using Martha Stewart's Valentine Glitter letters that I found at Michaels.



Add Aqua blue ink around the edges of your page and it's finished.



For page 6 cut a sheet of patterned paper 5 1/2 x 6.



Cut another sheet of patterned paper 5 x 7 1/2. Fold over 2 1/2 inches.


Glue a different patterned paper onto the flap measuring 2 1/2 inches. Add another patterned paper measuring 2 x 4 1/2 and glue to the center



Print and cut this Valentine.




Glue your vintage Valentine to the middle of your flap.



I then added photo corners using Martha Stewart's photo corner punch to the top and bottom corners on the left side.



Here is what your piece should look like so far. Now take your piece and glue to the center of your page.



Now when you open the fold you can add extra Valentine's or a hidden message to the special one receiving this album or more photos. I added this simple sentiment to the bottom using Martha Stewart's Valentine glitter stickers that I purchased at Michaels.




I hope you enjoyed the 3rd installment of this album!
Have a great day!
Lindsey
