As a consultant, sometimes it is easy to be so focused on your work that you forget to do something for yourself. That is why I'm honored to be in a group called the Inky Fingers that meets about every other month for some papercrafting fun. My friend Caryl invited me to their group and I just love the projects that they come up with! We haven't met yet this month, but I heard about the project and just had to share it with my CTMH team ASAP! Thankfully Sabine sent me the link to the directions so I could prepare for the meeting early. Thanks Sabine! She found the directions here in case you would like to make one too, but see below for a few tweaks that I made. Here is my little mini album of my son. (Isn't he too cute!?)
Little mini magnets are attached using Liquid Glass to hold the flaps down.
The original directions weren't quite clear as to what to do with the ends of the ribbon straps. I tried just tying the ends together in the back, but the knot was too bulky. Instead, I taped the ends to the inside of the back and then just glued the back page to it to cover it up. Now it lays nice and flat!
The mini magnets were quite hard to find. I looked at Michaels and Joanns, but they didn't have them there. I finally found them at Artco in the center isle, not with the other magnets. I know you can order them online too, but I was too impatient didn't have time.
Make sure you round the corners of the flaps before you glue everything together and add the brads. Oops!
