Christmas Countdown Day 30

It's the last day of our Christmas Countdown!

Today we have a lovely Christmas hanging by Trish.

Please head over to Doodles and Swirls for more.

It's been a wonderful month of sharing projects with you all, we hope you had as much fun as we did!

If you've made a project for any of the one's we've done throughout the month, do share with us on the CCW blog. There might be some prizes to be won!

It's December tomorrow so it's going to be Christmas before you know it.

A very Merry Christmas to all of you and thanks for the wonderful support!

Christmas Countdown Day 27

Tissue roll mini album

I’m sure many of you know how to make this album, but just as a refresher course here’s how I do it.

Take a couple of tissue rolls (I collect these and use them once I have enough for a mini album) and flatten them using a brayer or a pile of heavy books.

Once they’re quite flat, paint them up with colours of your choice (or that will match your patterned paper).

Once paint is dry, cut up patterned paper to fit the panels – I used Echo Park’s Times and Seasons 6x6 paper pad, which you can get at CCW along with other yummy papers!

Once that’s done, I used my label maker to spell out all the things I’m thankful for – my family, friends, crafting, CCW to name a few.

After that, punch holes at the side of the panels (make sure you punch the holes first before you start embellishing) and either use ribbon/metal rings/twine/metal bindings to bring your album together.

Since there are slots in between the pages, you can either put journaling inside or put photos – the choice is yours!

*Make different themed projects in no time so have fun and it’s also a good way to use up paper scraps*

Hope you have fun with the project!

See you tomorrow for day 28!
