Step 1. Either punch or cut out circles to use as the background for your pocket album.
Step 2. Use the tape runner to adhere the circles to the wooden cut outs. I covered both sides with paper circles. Step 3. With the tape runner, add photos and embellishments to the circles. This is where the smaller circle punches come in handy – you can create perfect circle photos. Step 4. Use the Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole at the top of each circle. I used the larger hole setting.Step 5. After you’ve decorated five or six wooden pieces, add them to a large keyring. For this pocket album, I used photos or phrases from the month of March. It’s a quick way to capture a month.
But, you could also decorate both sides of six pieces and that would be perfect to represent each month of the year. Step 6: If you want, add some bits and bobs to the keyring for extra texture. I added a charm, a wooden shape, and a tassel. These quick and easy pocket albums make very nice, thoughtful gifts!I used this white paper gift box and tissue paper for a perfect fit.
Tell me – do you prefer mini albums or the traditional, full-size albums?
