Teacher mini albums - End of year Gift

               I made six mini albums to give to my Pre-K's teachers along with the bus drivers.

All six mini albums!! Whew!! It looks like a lot of work but it wasn't too bad!! Especially when you enjoy what you do.

I cut bazzill black cardstock out on my cricut with the jasmine cartridge using shape frame. I cut it at 5'3/4 than the layer of tradewinds paper at 5'1/2. the papers did not fully layer very well but I like the look. The inside oval is made to go inside of the frame so it is also cut at 5'1/2 than fits perfectly inside.

I used the Tim Holtz claps to bind it but need to get out to the crat store to by a binding ring because it's a pain to flip through the pages.

The inside ovals are dry embossed with Cuttlebug A2 Embossing Folder - Fleur De Lis. Two of the oval shapes fit in the A2 floder so this was a breeze. Plus my five and three year old can use my sizzix. Which mean they enjoy turning the crank and finding out what comes out, also less work for me ;)!!
