BTS so soon!

It’s back to school time again! Where did the time go?! This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the challenge is to create a school themed project. I remembered I had some pictures of my niece’s first day of 2nd grade so I created a matchbook album. This album was so easy to create.

Step 1: Start with card stock 3-7/8″ x 9-1/4″. Score at 4″ and 8-1/2″ and fold both flaps in so that the long flap tucks under the short flap.

Step 2: Create cards for the inside by cutting card stock into 3-5/8″ x 4-3/8″ pieces. You can make as many as you like, but four or five is recommended. More than five and the book will get a little too full.

Step 3: Adhere photos and embellish!

So easy! Check out Hand Stamped Stamped Sentiments for more BTS inspiration and join our challenge.
