For Valentine’s Day (and every other holiday), I love giving hand made stuff! This year, I wanted to make Kevin a scrapbook type thing that isn’t bulky, or overly girly. Let’s be honest, it’s hard not to be girly when using pink and red for Valentine’s day, but I think he’ll like it!
It is made using: an Altoids container, photos, a tape runner, black 12×12 scrap booking paper, thickers, corner rounder, paper cutter, slick writer marker and tin badges.
First, I found a bunch of photos of him and I that I loved and then printed them out at Walgreens. I then cut them down to about 2 1/8 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Then, I rounded the corners with my 3/8 rounder.
I then cut a strip of black paper to make it 3 1/2 by 12 inches. And then folded it every 2 1/8 inches. After, I used my 3/8 corner rounder to round the corners of the black paper.
I carefully adhered more strips of black paper to the first one (because I had a lot of photos)!
I left the last section of the black strip of paper without photos so I could glue that one to the inside of an Altoids container.
I then glued each photo to the black paper. Afterwards, I folded it up and it all fit perfectly inside!
I loved this project and I really hope he does too!
