Matchbook Mini Album Class - Wed., Feb. 8 at 5:30 pm, $25.00

In class we will make the 6 pocket matchbook but you will be given instructions on how to make the 12 pocket on your own -- it just takes too long to make in class.

These matchbooks can be adhered to a scrapbook page or mini album or left alone as a mini album on their own.  They are skinny enough to put in a regular envelope to mail to relatives or friends.  Once you open the matchbook cover, the tags inside "pop" down on their own like a fan file, just dying for you to take each tag out to look at it.  You can put photos on the tags and journaling, and even put photos on the pockets if you wanted. 

This class is also being offered on Monday, Feb. 20 at 4:30pm, President's Day.  If you sign up with a friend, the class fee will be reduced to $15 for each of you, for either class.

Supplies needed:  Martha Stewart Scoring Board and bone folder, paper trimmer, scissors, 1/4 inch two sided tape such as Scor-Tape, (wider tape will not work on this project, it has to be 1/4 inch), two sheets of solid colored 12x12 cardstock (one for the tags and one for the matchbook cover, they can be two different colors), one sheet of 12x12 scrapbook paper for the pockets (might want to bring two in case of error when cutting or scoring, single sided scrapbook paper is fine, lightweight works best), a bottle of quick clear drying glue such as Glossy Accents or Zip.  If you have a 1" circle punch please bring that as well, but it isn't necessary, it will just speed things along if you have your own.

If you don't own a scoring board, you can still take this class.  Just email me and let me know that you need to borrow a scoring board and I will bring an extra for you.

An assortment of embellishments will be provided for your rosettes on the bellybands as well as embossing folders for the matchbook covers.

Please email me by Monday, Feb. 6 at the latest at or call me at 410-381-7944 if you wish to reserve a spot in this class.  Payment is due at the night of the class (cash please).  We meet in the classroom at Hobby Lobby on Snowden River Parkway near BJ's and PetSmart.
