I really liked to do it, but documenting every day is not possible because of work and you know.. life! This year I wanted to do something like December Daily, but simpler.
I decided to make a mini album with tags. When december comes, I only have to print my pictures, embellish it and ready! Here is how I made it:
I cut all the papers and patterns to size. I used some self made stamps on some of the papers to get a cohesive look through the album.
The real fun begins by decorating some of the pages with embellishments, die-cuts and stickers. I used the die-cuts from the Crate paper Christmas collections, sticky notes banner shapes from the Carousel collection and epoxy heart stickers by Funny Sticker World. A fair warning; try not to decorate too much, because you still need space for your pictures later!
These faux suede tassels I bought a long time ago, were a perfect match for decorating this mini. They were just a little too big, so I used a sharp pair of scissors to cut the tassel straight. Jewelryhooks are perfect to attach the tassels to the binder ring.
I love to use binder rings for these mini albums, because you can add tags and mix up the pages at any time you want.
Last, but not least I stitched some of the tags with red thread, for a real Christmas feel!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I post a flip through on my Instagram @sgrselse, if you want to see the entire album!
Let us know if you are joining in on December Daily, and how are you documenting this special time of year? XOXO Else
