Add A Little Dazzle & Fancy Pants Day 5

Hi! Its the last day of the joint blog hop! There’s been tons of fun projects over at Fancy Pants & Add A Little Dazzle. Hope you’ve got chance to see some of them this week
My last project was more of a labour of love. It’s not entirely finished on the inside (but let’s not talk about that right now ūüėČ Here’s how I made it…
Firstly- create an accordion fold on a piece of cardstock & then add a cover to either sidemb2Add double sided tape (red liner is perfect as it’s super strength!).
mb3¬†Now, add yourself some pages. I cut mine roughly the same size as the front and back cover, but very slightly smaller. Here’s where I started playing around with the metal. I thought they might make interesting binding. And actually, not only do they add interest and shine to the mini-album, they add a little rigidity and strength and also help the front cover stay open when you open it. I used Golden Glimmer metal for the binding- (click the picture to take you to the Boutique)

I could have used this on each fold, but the chances of getting it really neat were beyond my capability so I decide to use some of the Fancy Pants Corrugate paper, which comes as part of the MEology kit

mb5 As you can say, it was perfect, as it bends beautifully- just what you need for a mini book that will be opened and shut a lot.mb6
You can see how I created a metal flower (using Perfect Peacock metal)¬†echoing the shape of the ones on the patterned paper, and I cut up one of the patterned papers that had the days of the week on, fussy cut around the shape over the wording and used them as tabs for each page. The paper is great quality, double sided (I know, choosing is hard!) and has a really varied range of patterns in each pack. Fancy Pants generously sent the kit, which contains 3 sheets of corrugate paper, a 12×12 sticker sheet plus 2 other sticker sheets and 12 sheets of paper. Add A little Dazzle is stocking their newest Christmas range ‘Oh Deer’ plus coordinating metal sheets which is gorgeous too!mb7

    LOVE the metal on your binding. I have encountered the same problem on my minis making the pleats all look even….using the corrugate is a great idea!!!! What a pretty flower made with the metal, too. Wonderful project!!

    I love how you sandwiched the corrugated paper onto the spine between the metal pieces!
