ʺHello, this is Terri of http://www.scrappinwiththebug.blogspot.com/. Today, I have an Apple Mini photo album to show you.ʺ I made these cute little apple albums for my daughter's pre-school teacher and assistant. I made these so they could put a small 3x3 photo inside. This album will hold 24 total photos, however, I only matted the one side.
|Apple mini photo album|
|Finished Apple Mini Album|
I used only 3cartridges for this project.
Create A Critter - 2 Apples and worms with shadows function I hid the faces of the apples w/ the gypsy
Mini Book - Cut 6 of the Square L2 cut for inside pages
Cricut Craft Room Basics - Rounded Squares (photo mats)
|Scored all pages|
Once cut I then scored the pages on the tick marks using a score board. Glue 3 of them together end to end. I simply glued the tab to the bottom of the next page. If you need more area for photos then cut out another page.
|Mountain/Valley fold the pages after glued together|
I folded each of the pages in Mountain/Valley style or fan fold.
|Glue pages to apples|
Once folded then I glued the pages tot he inside of the apples. I glued some twine under the 1st page to make a pretty little bow. Hold down the album and carefully glue the back page on.
|Add photo mats and tie |
Once the inside pages were glued down I added a red photo mat cut with Craft Room Basics for the mats. I find I like to use my machines to make the photo mats.
I then decorated the Apple shadow cut. I added the brown layer, then the green leafs, and the red apple layer. I added the cut little worm to the side with foam dots.
Cartridge Cut w/ Measurements:
Create a Critter Apples: 5 1/2" - cut 2 of them - one for each album w/shadow function & layers
Create a Critter Worms: 2" - cut 2 of them one for each album w/ shadow function and layers
Mini Books - 3 1/2" Square L2 - cut 6 of them 3 for each album (unless you need more space for photos).
** A little tip - if you try to cut the L2 squares at 3 1/2" on the expression it will beep at you and say that it won't fit. That is because it is very close to the edge of the 12x12 mats. Here is a little trick - select the Mat Size 24 function and still use the 12x12 mat. It will really cut almost to each edge so make sure the paper is 12x12. ***
