2 Mini Brag Books - Friday, Feb. 17, 10:00-12:00, $15.00

We will make both the 12 page AND the 16 page mini albums in class.  One is 4x3 and the other is a 3x3 album.  They both lay very flat and can easily be mailed to relatives and friends and you can put as many pockets and tags in them as you want.  The amazing thing is that both are made from just one sheet of 12x12 paper.  That's right!  How can you beat that?  Make your own albums out of just one sheet of paper.

Each album will require a sheet of medium weight two sided scrapbook paper (not cardstock), or bring just one sided and then bring a different sheet to cut out a cover and back with.  But the learning experience comes from using a two sided sheet of paper and seeing how to make the album so that the cover and back side are from one side of the paper and the inside pages all come from the opposite side of the paper.  This is all done without cutting out any pieces of paper; the paper will be left in one piece, you just need to know where to score and what lines to cut along (but not cut out).

To make both albums with the tags you will need to bring:

A Martha Stewart Scoring Board and bone folder, paper trimmer, scissors, 1/8 inch two sided tape (the skinniest tape made, such as Scor-Tape), two pieces of two sided 12x12 medium weight scrapbook paper (Joann Fabric sells a lot of this by the sheet, made by Heidi Grace, and Michaels has a lot of it too, by the sheet), two pieces of 12x12 cardstock for the tags,  and a 1" circle punch if you have one.

If you don't have a scoring board, just email me and let me know so I can bring an extra for you to borrow.

Please email me by Tues., Feb. 14 if you would like to reserve a spot in this class.  Email is or call me at 410-381-7944.  We meet at the Columbia Hobby Lobby on Snowden River Parkway near BJ's and PetSmart.
