Here are the new dies I introduced:
Sku Name S4-354 Splendid Circles
1. ¾ inches
2. 1 ½ inches
3. 2 3/8 inches
4. 4 inches
Today, I am going to share with you how I made this quick and easy mini book.
First, I started by gathering my supplies. Bazzill cardstock, pattern paper, KaiserCraft stickers, Beacon Adhesives, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares and tape runner, Pictures, Spellbinders Die Templates, Spellbinders Grand Calibur®, ribbon and button.
To create the cover, place the die templates blade side down onto the cardstock on the cutting plate. To ensure the dies did not move during this process, I used a low tack tape (painters tape). The cardstock is ready to be cut.
Once the diecuts are cut out, run through the Grand Cailbur® Die Cutting and Embossing machine once more to emboss. Using the A Base plate, dies with paper attached (blade side up),Tan Embossing Mat and B Embossing Plate, run through the Spellbinders Grand Calibur Machine. (This is the sandwich to emboss)
Now, that the paper is cut and embossed, it is time to adhere it together. Take the Zip Dry adhesive and liberally spread it over the back side of the patterned paper, then place it in the center of the orange card stock.
Apply foam tape to the white die cut.
Apply to the pattern paper.
Cut/emboss picture using die template #2 from the Splendid Circles set. Again, I used painters tape to keep the die in place.
Apply die cuts to the front, and add letter stickers to create a title. To create depth, add foam tape to die cuts.
Use larger pictures to create the inside pages.
Apply adhesive to the backside of the cover.
Adhere picture to the cover.
Keep repeating these steps, until your mini book has enough pages. Once you are finished, bind the pages using a D-ring, and add ribbon to decorate (if you want).
For a second project, I created a tag that is ready to be used on a gift, gift bag, or even on a card.
