Need some low budget holiday gift ideas? All the DIY gifts in the "Handmade Gifts for the Holidays" series can be made with supplies costing $10 or less!
You will need:
1 6x6 inch paper pad.
At least 5 sheets of cardstock in a coordinating color
craft knife or sharp scissors
School glue or permanent glue
permanent Double-sided tape or permanent glue stick
Cut five sheets of cardstock to the following measurements:
9-3/4″ x 6-1/4″
9-1/2″ x 6-1/4″
9-1/4″ x 6-1/4″
9″ x 6-1/4″
8-3/4″ x 6-1/4″
Score each piece 4 ¼ inches in from left side and then again 4 ¼ inches in from the right side. You will have two lines toward the middle of each sheet. Fold inward along the score lines. This will give you two equal sized pages and a narrow spine for each sheet.
Stack the pages of your album together from biggest to smallest. Use double sided tape or glue stick hold the pages together.
Design your pages! Choose the pages you like from the paper pad and cut them down to 6 x 4 inches and stick them to the middle of each page. For the spine, cut a 1 x 6 inch strip of paper. Add details and embellishments. Many paper pads come with embellishments that you can cut out.
