Don’t throw away that extra sheet of light chipboard material you receive in packaging! Cut it up and put it to good use as the base for a mini album.

Swirly White ABC/123 Stickers
Round-Tip Pen – Red
Fine-Tip Pen – Black
Hole Punch
Ring Binders

How to Create:
Cut chipboard material into pieces that measure 4″ square. Cover each chipboard piece on front and backside with patterned paper. Lightly sand edges of each paper piece, then doodle along edges of each page.

For each inside page, Renee journaled grade name on to white cardstock paper, then trimmed around with scissors. She then matted this trimmed piece on to black cardstock, then trimmed black cardstock, leaving thin border around white cardstock piece. These layers were adhered to pages in album. Additional stickers were added throughout to embellish.

To decorate cover, cut piece of blue patterned paper to measure 4″ square. Cut strip of red paper to measure 3/4″ x 4″. Lightly sand edges of each piece. Doodle along edges of blue piece and add faux stitching along long edges of red piece.

Using hole punch, punch two holes along left edge of cover. Line holes up and punch holes in remaining pages one page at a time. Bind pages together using ring binders. Add ribbon to finish.
