Heart Shaped Mini Album with American Crafts Cardstock
Nothing says I love you like a handmade gift, and this handmade heart shaped mini album by Manasa is one of the sweetest creations I've seen. The recipient will feel so adored and it will become a special keepsake for years to come.
Though this might looks complicated, the "bones" of the project are super simple, and then you can embellish with your own special style.Supplies:
- American Crafts Cardstock
- Matching Die Cuts from the same cardstock
- White paint
- Miscellaneous texture scraps (tulle, cheese cloth, crepe paper etc)
Here's how Manasa made her heart shaped mini album...
Step 1: Cut hearts in the size and color of your choice.
Step 2: For the monochromatic effect, cut some die cuts of flowers, leaves, tags etc from the same paper. This is a great opportunity to use your dies.
Step 3: For a distressed look, use a distress tool or the edge of scissors to distress the edges of the heart and your die cuts.
Step 4: Assemble each page of your album. Use scraps of tissue and cloth in addition to your die cuts for extra detail.
Step 5: Once the pages are assembled, cover your picture and add some splatters of white ink. You can also use watered down gesso, white watercolor paint or any other medium.
Step 6: Punch holes and use a circular binder clip to finish your album.
