Aug - Sept 08 Inspirational Scrapper

Artz de Scrap's Chosen Inspirational Scrapper for August 08 is


I love to spend time on scrapping when I am not busy. Preserving memories is very important to me. My only wish is to "infect" more scrappers to this beautiful and yet meaningful hobby. Thats my current mission in scrapbooking. With that mission in mind - I have started a blog called Scrapping Inspirations ,featuring my fellow Malaysian scrappers to help promote the art in my country.

Purse Album Tutorial

Things you would need

Chipboard covers (I have used 6.5 by 6.5 inches here)
One chipboard strip for the spine of the album
Paper for inside of the album
(I have cut mine to 4.5 by 12)
One pipe cleaner (for threading the pearls through)
Crop-a-dile or anything you can make a hole with

Step 1:
Measure half an inch off the square chipboard cover on side and cut the excess away as in pic.

Step 2:
Cover the chipboard with patterned paper.

Step 3:
Add the spine to the 2 covers, add double sided tape to both side to adhere the spine to the covers and remove the double sided tape.


Step 4:
Cover the spine with patterned paper.

Step 5:
Thread the pearls through the pipe cleaner.
Step 6:
Make holes in the spine and thread the strand of pearls through and secure.


Step 7:
Score the paper for the album inside into half.

Step 8.
Create a simple accordion by sticking the ends of the pages together.
Step 9:
Stick on the pages to the covers and voila you have a simple purse album.

Step 10:
Decorate as you please....
We are pleased to inform you that this purse album will be our next Challenge (#10) for September.
