This is my DT's sample for LESSology Challenge #20 ~ Barely There
(to include something clear in your project)
** warning - photo heavy **
my recycling item is also my "clear, see through" item
as you know me, I am a big fan of PTI stamps, I bought new stamp set every month, therefore I have tons of this clear backing that comes with the stamp set
I am making a "see through" window for the front page of a mini album
first, I used Spellbinder die to cut out 2 pieces of patterned paper, one for the front page and the other is for the back, plus 1 piece of thin chipboard piece, they came with the 12x12 paper I ordered online, if your patterned papers are thick enough, you probably could skip the chipboard piece, next I used a smaller die to make a window in the middle of the page
the next step is to used double-sided tape to place the clear plastic on the chipboard piece, followed by the front the back patterned paper
now I have a little see through window
here are the pages of the mini album...
I make this for my aunt, who came visited us last September, we took these picture at the Grand Canyon North Rim
while I was looking through my stash looking for something to recycle, I found this 12x12 clear paper I bought 10 years ago, perfect to use on this project huh?
I placed the clear paper on white cardstock (for the left side) and a smaller piece of it on the photo (the right side)
that kind of give an interesting look to the Grand Canyon Photo
more see through window for the pages inside the album, this time I have the butterfly stamped on the clear plastic
the butterfly image is from Graphic Fairy, I printed it for one of my project but it was too big, so I kept it thinking I will be using it someday, here you go....
back of the mini album
don't forget to add embellishment for the front page
thanks for staying with me......
