Hello Friends, Today I am sharing a tutorial for 2 more pages in a Vintage Valentine themed paper bag album.
To start page 3 in the book, cut a piece of paper 5 1/2 x 6.
Cut a piece of cardstock 5 x 5 1/2 and sheet of patterned paper 4 1/2 x 5. Glue together to create a photo mat.
I then made this bow by taking an 8 inch strip of pink ribbon and cutting off 2 inches. Cut another 2 inches piece from another strip of ribbon. I used red. Tie a knot in the center of your 6 inch strip ribbon but before you pull it tight, slip both pieces of ribbon through the loop and then pull tight. Cut the ends at an angle. This will create a nice small bow.
Print and cut the Valentine.
Take one end of your ribbon and glue to the back of your mat and wrap around the front and glue the other end on the back. Make sure you have it glued down tightly. Tuck the Valentine to the edge of the mat and glue the photo mat to the center of your page. Add blue ink along the edge of your page. I have been using a Cat's Eye Ink Pad in Aqua for this book. These can be found at your local Scrapbook store or at Jo Anns.
For the 4th page in this book start by cutting a sheet of paper to 5 1/2 x 6. Next cut a 5 x 5 sheet of paper and then cut it again from corner to corner. I then took a Martha Stewart Scallop punch and punched across longest side. You can find the punch at Michaels or here at Amazon. I then added blue ink across the scalloped edge to make it stand out.
Turn your triangle paper piece over to the back and just add adhesive to the straight edges. Not in the middle. This will be a pocket.
Glue to the bottom right corner of your page. Then add a decorative piece to the front of your pocket that can either be journaling, a date, a photo or another vintage Valentine. I added this little die cut piece from the Cupid Collection by Pink Paislee. I used adhesive foam dots to make this piece pop out from the page.
Cut and print Valentine postcard.
Add your postcard to the pocket.
I then cut a piece of cardstock to be 4 x 5 1/2. Next I cut a sheet of patterned paper to be 3 1/2 x 4 1/2. I cut it half an inch shorter than I needed and cut another piece of patterned paper half an inch and punched one side. This is optional but adds a cute touch to the mat. Glue both pieces to the cardstock to create a photo mat.
Add the mat to your pocket. Add blue ink around the edges of your page. Then I added a little bit of bling to my page by taking this red pearl adhesive accent by Prima which can be purchased at your local Scrapbook store or Michaels.
I hope you have enjoyed following along with 2 more pages in my book! Stay tuned for more pages and a look at the book when it's finnished!
I am using the Cupid Collection by Pink Paislee. If you would like this paper too you can find it here on ebay.
Have a great Monday, Lindsey
