Matchbook Mini Album Class -- Monday, Feb. 20, 4:30-7:30pm, $25

 This is the 12 pocket matchbook without a cover
This is a 6 pocket like we will be making in class, with a cover

In this class we will be making a matchbook mini album which holds 6 pockets with 6 tags for photos or journaling.  It is thin enough to fit into an envelope to mail to relatives as a photo keepsake or small enough to fit in your purse.  It can also be permanently mounted to a scrapbook page or mini album page like I did in my Halloween mini album if you remember seeing that one.  You will be given instructions on how to also make the same matchbook but with 12 pockets and 12 tags, we just won't have time in class to do that much.

  The belly band slides on and off .  We will be making the pockets on a scoring board, cutting the tags on a cuttlebug or Sizzix, using the Tim Holtz rosette die,  and making the matchbook holder on a scoring board.  If you don't have a scoring board, no problem.  I have several to loan out.  It looks complicated, but it isn't. 

Supplies needed:  One sheet of 12x12 one sided scrapbook paper (such as the black and white dotted that I used, or bring two sheets to leave room for error), two sheets of 12x12 cardstock in two different colors to be used as the matchbook cover and tags.  You will also need a Martha Stewart Scoring board and bone folder or let me know to bring an extra one for you, a paper trimmer, 1/4 inch two sided permanent tape such as the red tape or Scor-Tape, scissors, and a bottle of Glossy Accents or other clear, quick drying glue such as Zip.

If you sign up with a friend, the cost of the class will be reduced to $15 for each of you.
Please email me at by Feb. 16 if you would like to reserve a spot in this class.
