What's Up Wednesday! March 17, 2010

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

It's also What's Up Wednesday!!

Have a super easy mini album page for you to make!

It uses a half sheet of 12" x 12" for each page. This can be solid card stock or patterned paper.

Cut paper to 6" x 12". Score 1/2" on each side and at 6" across the width.

Trim away 1/2" from each side as shown.

Fold on score lines.

For a binding flange, cut a 2" x 4" piece of card stock. Score, fold, and adhere in half. Punch holes for rings or Bind-It-All.

Insert binding Flange in between layers of pouch. Use your favorite adhesive to create a "pouch" page. Cut a semi circle finger pull at top edge with a punch.

Add patterned paper and embellishments.

Have an awesome week!!
